(I’m at a hospital for a non-emergency with my mom and 10-year-old brother. We’ve been there a while and my brother and I are very hungry, so my mom sends us to the food court with her card. I order the food and swipe the card, but it’s declined.)

Me: *To my brother* “Let’s just go find Mom, she’ll figure it out.”

(We’re walking out the door when I hear someone calling “Ma’am?” repeatedly. I turn around and the cashier is calling me, so I walk back over.)

Cashier: *Pointing to next person in line* “She paid for your food.”

Me: “Are you sure?”

Woman: “Yes. I believe in paying it forward.”

(I normally wouldn’t have accepted so quickly but I was so hungry I couldn’t refuse. I thanked her over and over again for her kindness. That good deed gave me and my brother food and warmed our hearts.)
