A Surprising Valentine!!!

For Valentine's Day, my husband and I went to our favorite Mexican restaurant after Mass tonight. We saw several friends tonight and made several new ones. We were conversing with a young man (about 20 minutes or so) who was alone because he and his wife had sent the kids to Grandma's house, and then the wife got sick. So he came for dinner and picked up his wife a take-out. When my husband went to check out, the owner of the restaurant told us our bill had already been taken care of. In addition, so had the bill of another couple!! Chivalry is alive and well in America!!! I honestly believe in paying it forward. Several years ago on Mother's Day, I did the same thing in memory of my mom!!!

star That was so nice!

I love hearing about these wonderful "pictures" in life. Moments like these make you realise that there are many more wonderful people out there than not.
Glad to hear you both had a great Valentines day!
