I always pay if forward but mainly for kids. They can't help the situation they are in. I have paid it forward in line at 7-11 by buying the next person in lines coffee and at toll plazas.

There are people who appreciate it and will pay it forward and people who refuse to pay it forward. Most people never think to pay it forward until someone helps them.

I am curious, why didn't you just pay for the grocery's at a register?

I'm sorry this happened to you and happy that there was a kind person nearby to help out. That said, when you are having a low blood sugar, you need a fast-acting carbohydrate to get it back up. A candy bar (or cookies or cake) is NOT a fast acting carb because the fats slow the absorption of sugar into your system. You want/need the sugar to be absorbed fast! Raisins are a good fast-acting carb as are glucose tablets (Walmart has them in their diabetes section) and glucose gels. Or hard candies like Life Savers or jelly beans work well too because there are no fats in them. Make sure you always carry a fast-acting carb with you.

There are good people in this world and your angel was named Ted. Let the gratitude flow in big or little ways, it doesn't matter. You will feel some incredible magic when you pay it forward. It is also great that your son was able to share in that. He will remember it for years to come.

Diane,
That's a delightful account of what happened to you.

BTW did you ever find out what happened to that money supposed to be on the card?

God's best to you

James
