Cup 1

This is the beginning. Cup 1. The first of 365 cups of kindness.  Today’s coffee purchase was quite  spontaneous. It happened  quickly, and spurred an idea for the coming year: to purchase coffee for  strangers in hopes of brightening  the day,  and bring a little joy into a  hectic and sometimes senseless world.

Today’s cups took place at Starbucks, zip code 97303. After paying for my items,  I presented a $20 bill at the counter and asked the barista to pay for the coffee(s) behind me.  The barista appeared a tad confused, but the  customers behind me were  thankful. One laughed a  little bit– out of sheer surprise, I imagine. I was pleased. It brought a smile to my face as I quietly slid into my chair, sipped  my extra-hot latte, and bit  the top hat off a colorfully iced snowman cookie.

      I read your Dec. 11th post, and can relate to the challenge of finding a target–for kindness! Keep up the great work.

    Love this concept!
    You should take a picture of your daily coffee, it would add a little something to your blog 🙂
