I apologize for skipping last week’s “Pay It Forward”.
I was busy waving to Patrick Kane!!!!!!!
And I was trying to get the attention of Corey Crawford!
Along with MILLIONS of others, I suppose…
It was a great morning of anticipation and waiting for the Stanley Cup and the 2012-2013 Chicago Blackhawks to parade by.
There was a prominent police presence including bomb sniffing dogs…(makes me sad to think about the kind of world we live in and the precautions we now have to take.)
And people in Chicago are so friendly!
This nice homeless man let us hockey moms use his sign.
We waited and waited, had a great spot in the shade and then the Cup zoomed on by.
As my boys said, “That was the best two minutes of our summer, so far!”
Yeah, the parade was thatfast!
So back to reality…
This week, my youngest son found a debit card in the grass at a carnival.
We took a special trip to the bank from where the card was issued and he waited in line for the next teller all by himself.
At his turn, he ever so shyly went up to the teller and said, “Umm, excuse me? I found this in the grass by my house.”
The teller was so sweet and thankful to him. She offered him the bowl of suckers (Dum-Dums of course, we were at the bank and that’s what all banks give out), and told him he could have as many as he wanted. He took some and gave a couple to his big brother.
I hope the person who lost his card knows it was in safe keeping. Losing a credit card is nerve-wracking enough, don’t ask me how I know.
Please chime in and boast about your good deed for the week. I love to read about them!
