I am happy to report that I have been gifted with a pay it forward gesture, which made my whole day. This occurred when I was assisting a family member of a patient at our local hospital, where I volunteer. The woman noticed that I had a book on my desk, which she had also read. We discussed the book for a few minutes. Later on, this woman came back from the gift shop with another book in the same series, which she then gave to me, with a smile.
On that day, a total stranger touched my heart with a beautiful, spontaneous, pay it forward gesture that I will never forget. Who would have guessed that a second hand book could mean so much?
