A story worth telling…. monica

Monica decided she would only buy Starbucks if she had the money on hand. No more putting it on her debit card. Wise choice.

While waiting at a doctor appointment, she realized she had the exact amount to buy 2 cups of Starbucks. One for her and one for her sister and made a mental note to stop by on the way back to the office.

Her wait to see the doctor was unusually long and she was beginning to get annoyed. She was thinking about all the things she needed to do and wondered “why am I waiting so long, WHY ME”?

Still waiting, she noticed an older gentleman checking out and he was asked for his co-pay amount and he didn’t have enough money. How much did he need? Exactly what she had for her Starbucks coffee.

She gave him her money because she believes that was the reasons for the long wait. She was meant to be there for this man.

It was fate. Do you believe in fate?

Monica posted her experience on facebook and one of her friends is sending her a Starbucks gift card. Pay It Forward.

Oh ya by the way, Monica is my daughter !!
