Today’s cup of kindness was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97071. As I paid for my daily latte, I additionally handed over a $5.00 gift card to the barista. Along with the gift card came instructions to hand it over to the next patron. I had been saving the card for such an occasion, as no one was immediately queued up in my rear-view. The barista gave a polite, but quizzical, look. After I quickly explained the daily task, he offered a warm smile and then happily handed over my hot coffee.
It was a great day in the blog project. I smiled for yet another simple step in the year-long journey toward bringing a little joy and kindness to others–one cup of coffee at a time. It was one more simple shot of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. Until tomorrow, and until that 75th Cup of Kindness.
