Paying it forward … with cookies

20 Mar

Here’s a short story about kindness to brighten your day.

It comes to us from our local Troop 60344 Girl Scouts, who a week or so ago had set up a table outside Lowe’s on Five Mile Line Rd. to sell cookies. One of their customers was Cameron Scalzo, the owner of the brand new Nautical Bowls restaurant in Target Plaza. He talked very excitedly about his new place and the fact that he and his wife were expecting their first child at any time. His wife would be very excited, he said, if he brought some cookies home, and chose six boxes from the table.

Another woman happened to be at the table as Cameron was chatting with the Scouts. She overheard Cameron talking excitedly about his new baby and new restaurant, and offered to buy all six boxes of his cookies for him. He tried to decline, but she insisted. She explained that she had misplaced her wallet in the Lowe’s parking lot earlier in the day and was incredibly relieved to find it just under her car. She couldn’t believe no one had taken it, and wanted to pay it forward.

What a wonderful expression of kindness for those young Scouts to witness.
