This weekend I took my husband to Louisiana to cap off his birthday celebrations. Despite the fact that my husband is born on Valentine’s, which is ultimately my favorite hoilday, I always want him to feel special as well. This year his birthday fell on a Wednesday, so we waited until the weekend to engage in our fun activities. Saturday we went to a new restaurant here in town named, The Whiskey Cake. The food was delicious. After which we went to see the new movie, Black Panther. Then on Sunday, we drove to the casino to gamble a little, but most importantly to eat at the buffet. You see, my husband LOVES food!!! So taking him there to eat all he could made his day!
As we stood in line, there was this guy standing there at the register talking with the cashier lady. I don’t really know what they were talking about because there was a couple ahead of us, and plus I try not to listen to other peoples conversations. But then the cashier asked the couple in front of us what they wanted to drink. I don’t know how much English this couple knew, but they knew enough to say what type of drink they wanted after being confused why the lady asked them that.
Then, she proceeded to say something else to the guy at the register. She then asks us what we wanted to drink. I was really confused at this point because they only ask what you want to drink when it’s time to pay and enter the buffet. Plus, the couple was still in front of us and the man was still standing in front of the cashier.
I’m guessing the lady saw how confused everyone was looking so she finally says, “He just paid for you all!” My mouth dropped. Me and my hubby were both in shock. The couple in front of us didn’t seem as excited and appreciative as we were that is why I don’t think they spoke that much English. I really don’t think they knew exactly what just happened. But both me and my husband showered the man with thanks and God bless you’s!
I have no idea why this man did this or why we were at the right place at the right time. But it did remind me of God’s love and how we should give to others and pay it forward. I plan to be a blessing to someone else this week.
