Award & Drive-thru


Phew, I had such a busy, tough week!

In difficult times, though,
there is always something to smile about :-)

My dear friend Tooki gave me two awards.
Wow, really? Thank you, thank you, thank you
very much, Tooki! You made my day!!



There was another nice thing happened to me.

*

On the way to a store,
I decided to get a cup of coffee at drive-thru.


At the payment/pickup window,
coffee shop staff said...



What? I don't even know the lady!

I don't know why she bought me a coffee.
But there is no doubt that she did with a good
heart. She sure gave me a positive energy.


Since she has already gone, I could not say thank you.

So instead, I decided to buy whatever the person
in a car behind me ordered at drive-thru next time.
I hope this someone will have a nice day :-)

Now I'd love to pass on the
awards to two of my dear friends;


I hope everyone has a nice day ahead!!

  15. Concats on your awards and how sweet that someone would pay for your coffee like that :) pawing it forward is the purrfect idea. (we sure wish we had a "Niko's Coffee" shop here...except the hours aren't compatible with our mom's coffee habit, mol!)

  21. Dear Tamago-san, (this is Orchid)
    Congratulations on your two awards!!!
    What a wonderful and sweet experience, it was♬♬♬
    And I checked the phrase "paying it forward" and found that it is「恩送り」in Japanese, sure is important thing I think. Thank you for the lovely post, my friend.

    Love and Lots of Hugs to you, Orchid*
