This morning Will, Olivia and I were at Cracker Barrel and our waitress came up to us and said, “I have to tell you that a patron in the restaurant has paid for your breakfast. Please don’t ask me any questions because I can’t tell you any more than that.” I was stunned. We’ve had people pick up our tab before, but it’s always been 1. someone we know or 2. Will was in uniform. Today we were in shorts and t-shirts after having left the farmer’s market. We have no idea if it was someone we know and didn’t see or if it was a total random act.

I asked the waitress to please pass along our most gracious thanks to whoever it was.

And, yes. We will pay it forward.
