How thoughtful!!

Today, after getting a few groceries I stopped throught the drive-through at Starbucks. I just needed a caffeine/chocolate fix before picking up Kailyn from school. Well, I'm not really paying attention to the lady infront of me (in her very nice BMW suv) because I was busy chatting with Ryan in the back seat. I figured her drink was taking a long time and I wasn't in the least bothered by waiting. And, to be honest, it didn't even seem that long of a wait. So, eventually she pulls off and I pull up to pay as the lady behind the window hands me my drink. She proceeds to tell me, with a smile on her face, "it's already been taken care of!" I looked at her in shock!! What?? She told me that the lady in front of me felt bad for making me wait so long because she had forgotten to order some ground coffee and asked for it when she got to the window. Well, I couldn't believe it! How thoughtful is that? I was deeply touched by her kindness. Thank you lady in the BMW - whoever you are!!!! (it tasted delicious! :) )
I know that there are still very many nice people in this world but there are days when God reveals them to us so clearly. It was such a HUGE reminder to me that I need to do the same sometime.
