You Matter Moment of the Week

In the spirit of, “you never know when a You Matter moment is going to come along,” I wanted to share a recently submitted and quite unique You Matter story. During a less-than-pleasant run in at a drive through, Lisa from Georgia made a split-second decision that would not only change the course of her day, but someone else’s too.

One day while at a fast food drive-through…

I had ordered and was proceeding forward to the ongoing horn-blowing of a lady who, apparently, was in a hurry. Not only was she blowing her horn, but she was also pressing the gas pedal as if she were going to hit my car with hers.

Right then, I told myself, “I’m going to fix this little lady.”

I got to the payment window, paid for her breakfast, and left a You Matter Card at the window for the cashier to present to her. Sure enough, at the red light, here comes the little horn-blowing lady – window wide open and beeping as she hurries by – but this time she is smiling, yelling “Thank You!”, and waving until she disappears.

Never in a million years did I think this card could change the entire course of a person’s day. Not only her day, but mine as well.

Next time you find yourself in a frustrating situation like this, try taking an unexpected approach of kindness like Lisa! You may be surprised by how far one simple act of kindness can go.

You matter.
