ACT OF KINDNESS: Paying the elephant necklace forward

Posted on November 16, 2013 by Laura

Acts of Kindness is my most favorite 40 day challenge.  There is something so special that happens when you catch someone totally off guard by doing something nice for them.

As you know, Megan gifted me her elephant necklace yesterday.

This morning, as I was getting dressed, I picked out an elephant necklace and put it on. I hadn’t received the gift from Megan yet because Slim was already asleep by the time I got home last night.

Tonight, after work, I went to my Starbucks for a cup of coffee to unwind from a difficult work day.  As I ordered, Katie- the barista mentioned that she loved my necklace and had a thing for elephants.  I told her that I loved them too and then went on to drink my coffee.

When Slim arrived to meet me, he pulled out the gift from Megan.  As soon as he did, I knew what I had to do.

I took my elephant necklace off, and put the one from Megan on as I walked up to the counter and gave my elephant necklace to Katie.  The look on her face was priceless- and made it so worth it.

Today, #ChooseLove, friends! <3 Laura

PS. Sorry for the poor image, there was a line so we had to scramble to get this shot. haha
