It’s Not Only About You.
Contributing towards the well-being of others can fulfill our lives in ways unimaginable.
The day before one of my marathons I decided to stop for an authentic dessert – NO NOT PASTA. During my indecisive moment, an elderly woman walked up to the cashier and ordered her macaroon and pointed towards the latte on the menu board. In French, I whispered to the cashier that I would pay for it. Amazed at the gesture, she asked me to sit with her. I obliged and found out that at 89 she took the bus downtown because she thought it was too beautiful a day to be in the house. She was all smiles as she told me about her family and late husband. Her smile cost me $8.00 but my return was PRICELESS.
