Paying it Forward

A friend of mine told me about a great day she had.

She'd found a bargain at a fast food place and went back for an ice cream cone.  The young man taking her order was on his 2nd day of work and had never used the ice cream machine.  She told his supervisor that she didn't care what it looked like and for him to go ahead and do it.

He did.

Presenting her with a lopsided cone, his supervisor asked her, "is this ok?"

"Yes! Great job! Perfect!"

And as she turned to walk away, she passed an older man, standing back from the menu, and in an undertone for her ears only, he said, "Good job."

She walked away thinking how good God is.

And she was right.

"So shines a good deed in a dark and weary world."
