On Saturday our son called us from Fort Riley. His wife, Lilly was taking their little dog Gracie to the emergency vet in Manhattan, Kansas because something was very wrong with her. Eric met Lilly at the vet, she was a bit hysterical, and for good reason. The vet had taken their little dog and told them they could not have her back until they paid the $135.00 examination fee.
Eric called me and asked if we could help pay for Gracie. This may come as a surprise to some of you, but the United States Armed Forces do not get paid much. So, of course I gave him my card number. Twenty minutes later, he called me back to tell me that a couple who had been sitting in the waiting room had taken care of the vet bill and left. Just a random act of
kindness to a young couple who was too broke to get their little doggie back.
We will be paying that forward the very first chance we get!
