Pay it Forward Strikes Again | Fran Powers
Categories: Stories and Memories
As we were finishing our meal an older gentleman stopped at our table and embraced number 1 grandson and told him to enjoy his time with his grandparents and pay attention to them as they wouldn’t be around all the time. We thought nothing of it and said thank you and wished them well.
The waitress brought our bill and told us we owed nothing!!! – the gentleman who had stopped and spoken to Christopher had paid our bill and all we owed was the tip to the waitress. He paid it forward. This was an extremely large and generous gift.
We were speechless, stunned and absolutely amazed at this act of generosity. We have heard of it happening to others but never thought it would ever happen to us. We were totally dumbfounded and don’t think we spoke a word all the way home thinking about it and tried to explained to the grandsons what happened. I mean we were really dumbstruck – it really is an amazing act of generosity and giving.
So guys I think we have to pay it forward. So the challenge is to do it. It might not have be as grand a gesture as what we received but just do." - Fran Powers
