Cup 49

coffee cupToday’s cup of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope was purchased at Starbucks, zip code 97071. And, for the record, it was simply fun. As I pulled into the drive-thru line, the backlog of traffic ensured that a Volkswagen Jetta promptly appeared in my rear-view.

As the barista rang up my total, I asked to pay for the next pending order. The barista seemed a bit surprised that I wanted to pay the entire $8.69 total for the person behind me. She responded with a bright smile, and enthusiastically repeated: “Oh my gosh, that’s just so nice of you!” Though she has served me on many occasions, she was not one of the baristas that knows of my daily blog project. As she continued to shower me with thanks, I freaked her out by saying: “And, you can read all about yourself in my blog.” She chuckled a bit, and I imagine she thought I was joking. They always do. But someday, when she gets around to reading, I hope she recognizes herself as the helping hands of the daily gift, fully caffeinated, and fully generous. So here’s to one more transaction in the spirit of kindness. May you be so inspired to give away a cup of kindness. Until tomorrow.
