I know, I know - way to go out on a limb Miranda and leave a huge 100% tip! Well, I had to start somewhere, and it wasn't going to be on a $50 check. Not now anyways. But I thought this was the perfect time to accomplish this goal. It made me feel good though, because it was just me and my daughter in the middle of the afternoon at On the Border and since I still had to head home to cook dinner, I wasn't going to get anything. I ordered her a kids meal, and the guy was so nice and gave us free chips and salsa to take home.
I figured since most of the lunch tickets fall in the $20 range, this is the tip you'd get in that price range anyways. So, he was probably not expecting it and I am sure it started off his dinner service right. Paying it forward really does feel good! Maybe next time I'll work up to the $20 100% tip?
What a better time to start a 365 Photo Project than at the beginning of the year? Also, let's face it, I don't have much time left if I want to include it in this challenge. So, January 2012 - new year, new challenge! At the beginning of each month, I will post my photos for the previous month. Enjoy!
Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo, lands at number 3 on the book list. That means it was a top seller for 2011. This book was a very easy read - I finished it in 2 days. Grant it, I had a round trip flight across the country to do it in, but all the same. If you have not heard of this book, it is the story of a 4 year old boy who had surgery and went to Heaven and back. I know. Believe in God or not, this is an amazing story. If you have a strong faith, this will solidify it. If you are wavering a bit, then this will just make you think more about the possibilities. Either way, I think it is a great read, and the story is well told - by his father, Todd Burpo.
