Friday FiveSpot presents... Mystery Couple Pay It Forward!

This week, my friend Adrienne emailed me a link to a news story from Philadelphia that reminded her of Living Your Five. I clicked through the link and was completely in awe of this random act of kindness that snowballed like a giant snowman of goodwill!

While eating at a local diner, a couple quietly asked to pay for their meal and the meal of another table of diners. They didn't make a big deal out of it, they didn't leave their names. They just offered a simple act of kindness.

What they didn't realize was that their single act of kindness would spur others on to continue their gesture and pay it forward themselves... for five more hours! Here's a link to the full news story with all the lovely details:

Now that's the power of paying it forward!
