Donuts


This is us eating donuts, well, them eating donuts. Occassionally for a treat we stop by Basha's for a morning donut which is always super fun. They get to chose their very own donut and then we sit and enjoy them in the store. Well, we decided to make the trek Thursday morning and we were waiting in line and this sweet older lady was ahead of us and she was taking a little longer than usual. I had an extra girlie with me and my three rugrats kept touching everything and talking a little louder than they should which kept me reminding them to fold their arms, quit touching and CHILL OUT! Anyways, this sweet lady decides that we are going to be her "act of service" for the day and paid for our donuts. She had the biggest smile and was happy to cover our 4 donuts. I am thankful for suprises like these that make me stop and think of areas I could be helping others. I love the feeling I get when helping somebody because I love them, it's kind of intoxicating and I wish I could remember that feeling more as I'm sure I'd be more apt to search for opportunities to do anything I can for somebody else.

That is cute, that happened to my parents one time. They had all 5 of us kids at some restraunt and this older couple gave them money to pay for our meal. I think they said something about us being so well behaved. I am pretty sure they must have just felt bad for my parents because we were always rotten.

What a sweet lady. I hope I'm observant like that when I'm old. I love how Tucker is wearing his cowboy hat. I miss that stage when Tyler was in his costumes. Soak it up while you can!!!!

Awwww, so nice! Mmmmm, donuts. I will try and remember that next time I am behind some oldie taking a super long time trying to figure out the credit card machine or something. Jk, I am a compassionate person. :)

Basha's donuts rock! In my opinion, they beat out all others...including those nasty crispy cremes.

Love the hat on Tucker! What a little dude.

What a sweet lady for picking up your tab. We should all learn from her example.

Love the hat on Tucker! What a little dude.

What a sweet lady and definately an inspiration! I'm also diggin' Tucker's cowboy hat!

I'm also diggin' on Tuck's hat, but I have to say the way that boy eats, it doesn't sell more of it. He's hysterical, but not very appetizing. :) So sweet, thanks for your random act to Trader Joe's!
