Act of Kindness

The other day I was driving north on the New Jersey parkway.  Because I did not have exact change,  I had to go through the cash booth.  The line was long and slow.  When I finally got to the window, the toll collector motioned for me to go through.  Not understanding, I handed her a five dollar bill.  She said, "the card before you paid your toll".  I was wowed...this has never happened to me before!!  I decided to pass along the act of kindness, I paid for the next two cars. 

Later I wondered how often does this happen?  I guess it doesn't really matter, as long as I pay it forward...


  1. Cynthia - what a great story! I love that you returned the kindness twofold!

  2. That's awesome! =) Way to follow suit and continue the trend. Purposeful acts of kindness help to change the world one person at a time, and if we would ALL be mindful of that ALL the time, we would be part of world change! How's that for hopeful?!
