There isn’t a better feeling than when a complete stranger does a random act of kindness. I truly believe that this is one of the most awesome things to be the recipient of. Let's keep it going.The few times that I was blessed to be the one to receive a free drink in a drive-thru from the person in front of me, was a really great feeling. Then that, in turn, reminded me to do the same.

I came across a post on Facebook of The Ambition Coffee and Eatery in Schenectady that is being proactive about helping those in need. They make it easy for patrons to not only pay it forward, but to feel good about what they have done in their community.

I love this idea. It seems to me that lately we have gotten away from the paying it forward movement. I am going to make a conscious effort to bring it back when I can. In the lesson we learn from Ambition Coffee and Eatery, it doesn’t take much, just a cup of coffee.

When have you been the recipient of a pay it forward?
