Good Deed for the Day!

I had a 9:45am dentist appt this morning, for my 6 mos. cleaning. As I sat and waited for my name to be called, an older, biz like woman walked in and stated she was there for her 9:45am, 6 mos cleaning. After much searching, the Denist realized they made a mistake and didn't have her name. It was her first appt with them. She seemed very sad and disappointed. She called her admin to make sure it was for TODAY and it was. I felt compelled at that moment to stand up and offer her MY spot, since we had the same time slot and same cleaning. This woman was SO happy, she called me her "angel" and said this was her "lucky day"...she thanked me over and over again for giving up my spot for a complete stranger. I wanted to help out, and I will say, in that moment, it made MY day to know I made someone else's day, with such a simple act of kindness!

I love good deeds!! What a great feeling. I always make a point to pay the toll for someone behind me (that is, if someone IS right behind me). That always gets a big smile!
