MAY 2, 24 .. PAY IT FORWARD..

Last Tuesday .. We posted the below April 28th National Today.

And we wrote..

In life, for many reasons, you simply can not pay back a good deed or favor done to us.

This is true especially when absolute total strangers help us out.

Meet Lisa !!

I went to our local Lake Havasu City Laundromat last week with a gigantic load of laundry (King Size Bedding and more) in five of the maximum size yard waste black plastic bags.

I hadn’t been to this particular Laundromat for at least a year, maybe more.

I must have “looked bewildered” (which I WAS) because Lisa, who was there with her REALLY great husband, jumped up, came over to me, and said..

“Can I help you?”

Lisa showed me the best (front load) washers in the laundromat to use. She coached me on how much laundry to put into them (far more than I would have put in), how to load the laundry detergent, how to select the proper cycle (heavy duty) and temperature (hot) etc et all.

When the washing cycle was finished, Lisa showed me the best dryers (there were four different sizes) to use. 

Patti was at the library as I was doing the above. I called Patti and put Lisa on the phone telling Patti how much help Lisa was giving me.

When Patti was finished at the Library I went and picked her up (Lisa and her husband watched our in process laundry) and Patti was able to meet Lisa and see her husband.

How do I? How Could I? Possible repay Lisa for her assistance?

I will try to Pay Her Kindness Forward.

Yesterday, here at our Edgewater Hotel, I was walking slowly and was maybe 50 feet up a long corridor from the elevators. When I arrived into the elevator lobby, an elderly woman was waiting for me, patiently holding the elevator door open for me.

How do I “repay” that?

This afternoon as I entered an elevator, I noticed that back up that long corridor an elderly man and woman were slowly coming towards the elevator lobby. So I stood, held the door open for them.

They said, “Sir. You are a very nice man!”

TO FEEL GOOD! DO GOOD!

Tomorrow, Patti and I are flying North to Alaska. Does The Shadow Know IF we will actually make it up to Las Vegas, board a flight,  fly to Seattle, wait for our next flight, then fly North to Anchorage?

Thanks so very much for all of your support.

    Love paying it forward –things like you did, in a drive through paying for the next person’s order, in a grocery line giving someone my spot if they have fewer items, etc.

    Cap and Patti, you both are the ambassador’s of good will, compassion and generousity. I am eternally humbled in your presence and blessed to be a receiver of your endless love and generosities. And what you’ve taught me through your living example is to ‘pay it forward’, indeed!
    Thank you both from the bottom of my heart and soul for the gifts you share with us all.
    Now it’s my responsibility to do the same. I am eternally grateful for your examples.
    Love,
    Michael and Little Bit
