Nothing but great news to report...

First and foremost, I want to thank Jesus for the good report Carolyn got from her oncologist yest. After 3 days of chemo this week her blood counts are PERFECT! Praise the Lord.

Yesterday, on the way home from Luke's school we stopped by Chickfila to get an ice cream cone. Kind of our little tradition on Mon/Wed's. We ordered, drove up to pay and I was pleasantly surprised by this: "Ma'am the lady in front of you paid for your order". I was dumbfounded, speechless actually. My exact words: "Are you kidding me?". They said no ma'am she actually paid for everyone in the line currently. There were 8 people behind me. What beautiful example of paying it fwd.

I was so challenged by her random act of kindness, that I gave the $1.82 that I would have paid anyway and said, "Tack that money on to her's and help more people out". They smiled and said sure. Spreading the Christmas cheer. Now, if someone would just do that in July when it's 105F here and I'm scrapping pennies and nickels from my change jar for our treats. Wink.

That's about it for us. Just anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus. Luke is getting so excited.

Its so nice when people do things like this, to bad it normally only happens at this time of year.
