First off, let me tell you that I am somewhat of a starbucks addict. But I only allow myself to go there twice a week (tuesdays and thursdays on my way to drop Cici off at preschool- which she also gets a little treat for the road). Anyway, back on the subject. I do believe in a $6 cup of coffee- not for the name, but for the taste and the service they provide.
The starbucks I go to is PACKED at all times, especially when I go around 8:15am. But the line goes quickly and they always have a smile on their faces.
Again, back to the point (I really don't care if you don't think I spend too much on coffee). Last tuesday I was watching the news and headlines were all about the shooting in NJ. I thought to myself, what the heck. This world is getting out of control. I feel like all the angry and disturbed people go to extremes to show their hatred- to be noticed and acknowledged. But what do we do as happy people to show the world what its all about? Not much, we are just internally happy (well I know I am). So I decided to buy the lady behind me in the drive thru line her $6 cup of coffee. The lady at the window asked if I knew her and I said "no". Then she asked if I wanted to lady behind me to know anything. I said, tell her "have a great day". I am no saint, I don't do this all the time, but I figured if all the angry and hateful people are getting to this world- then WE HAPPY and JOYFUL people need to fight back to bring LOVE back into this world. Who's with me? Do something special today.
