Random Act of Coupon-ing

Something interesting happened to me while I was out shopping with the kids today. We went to Old Navy to look around and once inside the door, we were asked if we wanted to do a "touchdown dance" and get a coupon for the store. Of course we said yes. We got a nice coupon for $5 off a $50 purchase.

Knowing that we would not be spending that much there today, I gave the coupon to a young family that was clearly already over $50. The young mother was shocked and asked me several times if I was sure that I wanted to give up such a good coupon. Once I convinced her that I was not going to be using the coupon she said, "Thank you! Something wonderful will happen for you today!"

While we were in the car on the way home, this was the conversation that I had with my daughter:

"That lady seemed very happy to get the coupon, Mom!" - Natalie
"She did! How much did it cost us to be nice to her?" - me
"Nothing! It was free! We could do that again!" - Natalie

Guess that lady was right........something wonderful did happen to me today.......
