Gotta have coffee!
Hard to start off the day without it when appointments and responsibilities are looming. Thursday morning in the Starbucks drive through line up, I was not a happy camper. Usually, I am not a part of the morning commute. I avoid it like the plague. Who wants to sit in traffic to get to the office – not me, thank you. So… there I was in the line up awaiting my turn and hoping the Knight Street bridge would not be jammed. A black BMW car was in front of me. I just happened to notice the car had a license plate I had never seen before. A four digit number with a military head shots relief on the right side. I am assuming it represented the military. Hmmm, I thought, I wonder who and what and why…. I also noticed the woman driver had a great manicure. (Women notice these things as we are observing life around us.) She waved at me as she was driving away. Hmmm… Do I know her? No.
Much to my surprize, I was told she had paid for my coffee order. “Why?” I asked, a bit confused. “People do that for others sometimes,” the perky cashier said. “Once six people paid for the car behind before someone stopped paying.” “Oh,” I said, still in a bit of shock. As she passed me my coffee, I quickly said, “I will pay for the woman behind me.” Miss Perky, said, “I love people.” And so… just someone paying for my coffee lifted the cloud and I hoped the “paying for others” would last for more than two customers.
Cheers to the gracious woman who paid for my coffee on Thursday morning.
We celebrated a happy Canada Day on Wednesday attending a family and friends BBQ. We love to be around our kiddies, their friends and their babies. It was a delightful afternoon.
To our friends across the border – a happy 4th of July. Enjoy the food, friends, family and fireworks.
