I wanted to take a moment to talk about something wonderful that happened this week. my wife and I were selling a piece of furniture. This lady did not remember she negotiated for a lower price. I did not relay the new price to my wife and she paid the original amount mistakenly.
Of course, the first on my mind was Mercy For Animals or Wildlife Alliance. My wife agreed and we sent the extra money right away. Wildlife Alliance won out since it seems much more difficult for them to raise money. We paid it forward to the animals woh needed it most. As much as a kind gesture it would be to pay for someone’s meal behind us in a line. I hate to say most people in this area are well off. Myw life mentioned anybody buying a Starbucks is already doing quite alright. Plus with COVID times, its not likely we are going out anywhere to pay it forward.
Nearly the whole day had passed and she contacted me. She remembered and she overpaid. My wife and I were happy to refund the money. Instead she said keep it and “do something nice for someone”. WOW…. Something like that is absolutely kind. I don’t want to use the word shocking or surprising. But it is. In this day and age; with the political climate and people truly suffering for money. its a joy to see such a kind gesture. I have to thank this individual to provide some positive light. the money will be well used and the wildlife in Cambodia will thank you for it.
