On Saturday June 18th I attended a group meeting at The Red Blazer in Concord. I knew my meal for the meeting did not include dessert and as you may know the first thing you see when you enter the restaurant are two large display cases with all sorts of cheesecakes, cupcakes, cakes and delectable morsels of sweetness that cause one to salivate like Pavlov’s dog. A young woman helped me select something which I said I would collect upon my exit. After my delicious lunch, my wife and I were leaving the restaurant and I asked if she wanted to get a dessert for her as well which she resisted and then after carefully reviewing the options, succumbed to the offer.

Upon paying for the two treats, I noticed that the cashier charged me for only one dessert and when I questioned her, she said, “Happy Father’s Day, I am paying for your dessert.” Her act if kindness made my day and clearly this gesture was one which made her day as well. I am not sure who you are, but my wife commented on your beautiful auburn hair, and I know you do not have a mortgage, and that you do not have any college debt yet, and you said you were sixteen. Whoever you are, you are a credit to young women and a shining example of kindness that is an inspiration to others. I can assure you that this act will be paid forward.
