Drive-Thru Kindness Can Be Contagious

This happened to me and inspired me to do something too... how about you?

A lot of people out there are going through some seriously tough times. The coronavirus pandemic has many people out of work or school, ordered to stay home. Others of us are out there, working through the current situation. Some are journalists like me, or healthcare workers, or grocery store and pharmacy employees.

With many of these people being stressed or over-worked, it put a smile on my face this morning as I went through the drive-thru to get a quick morning breakfast on my way to work. The actions from the woman in front of me made my day.

So it wasn't a grand gesture, but it was heartwarming nonetheless. I was inspired to pass it along and paid for the next person's breakfast behind me. I encourage everyone to do something every day if you can. It doesn't have to be something big, it can be something small like this. You never know how that little thing can mean so much and change someone's day for the better.

How can you start something good?
