Today’s Cup 46 was purchased at Starbucks, zip code 97303. The daily total was only a buck ninety-nine, but the barista’s commentary was priceless. As I paid for my latte and the daily cup of kindness, the barista asked if I knew the patron in the white sedan behind me. I replied: “No, it’s just because.” She smiled and said: “Oh that’s awesome, you know, I wish you could see the smiles on people’s faces when you do that. It just makes people so happy.”
The barista’s words were music to my ears. The transaction was only a quick couple of minutes, but filled with encouragement. It was enough of a good thing to bring a smile to my face, making me happy too. So here’s to another round of kindness, in the spirit of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. Smile between those sips, because it’s just all so good.
