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?
