Pay it forward

After the lady in Kohl's told me to "pay it forward", I was excited to actually have the opportunity to do so one day. I was coupon shopping in Branson in the Kitchen Collection store when I had a coupon I didn't need. The man in front of me was buying a bread machine for his wife for Christmas. I asked him if he had the $5.00 off $30.00 coupon. He said no. I didn't need mine so I gave him my coupon. He was glad to get it, and then when the lady rang it up, it doubled to $10.00 off. He was really excited then and turned to me and said, "THANK YOU!" I was really glad I was able to share the kindness that the ladies in Kohl's showed me on Black Friday by giving me their Little Tikes Fire station. So again... To them I say "THANK YOU!!!"
