Wednesday May 18th started out like most days in the last week, gray sky and raining...
It was promising to be a busy day and I had to get started early. I decided to stop at Tim Horton's in Tottenham and get breakfast at the drive-thru. I wanted the Sausage Biscuit, but opted for the healthier Homestyle Oatmeal and milk (my first good choice of the day ;-)
I drove up to the window to pay and asked what was the bill for the Pick up truck behind me, and was told $5.72. I told the lady to add it to mine and received my change, got my breakfast to go and headed off to my office for breakfast.
I am not sure what the reaction was from the person in the truck behind me was, I hope my action put a smile on their face... but my little act of generosity had the effect of picking me up on what was a lethargic day up to this point.
At the office, I had to make a number of calls, and one of my clients even noted the cheerfulness in my voice. I never told them why, that was not the point...
As the day has progressed, the "pick-me-up" has faded, the monotonous gray sky is getting to me... perhaps time for another good deed =)
