‘Giving it forward’ is more fun than receiving!
— Lorri


My husband and I love going out for dinner with my best friend and her husband, and tonight we went to Bonefish Grill for a couple’s night out.


Toward the end of our meal, we were talking about how a stranger blessed my family at Carrabba’s a few weeks ago by paying our more than $300 check and how, since then, we’ve been looking for a way to “give it forward.”

The restaurant was very busy and every table was full. We decided to look around and find someone to surprise. My friend said she noticed a family with an adorable little girl and how that would be the family.

It was very exciting to share our idea with the server and arrange to have our “I like” note delivered.

As we were getting ready to leave, we could hear the server say, “Your bill is all set,” to which the father responded in astonishment, “WHAT?!!”

We giggled the whole way out to our car and agreed this was the most fun we’ve had in a long time. We can’t wait to do this again . . . and very soon!
