Paying It Forward?

Yesterday, while at a thrift shop in Goleta, my husband discovered that the large armchair we were eyeing would not fit in the back of our wagon. A soft-spoken man, who had seen my husband measuring the car, offered to put it in his pickup and take it to Santa Barbara for us. Really?, we said. Sure, no problem, he said. We loaded the chair and ottoman in his truck and he followed us home.
He refused our offer of any form of payment, and we were blown away. I quickly thought to ask his name. Curtis. Well, thank you, Curtis, you made our day. And, by the way, the chair looks great in our house!
