My story is a very simple one, because of a simple action. While standing in line at the local department store, I was asked by the customer in front of me if that particular store offered postage stamps. I stated that they did offer books of stamps, but the gentleman needed only one stamp, not an entire book of them. I began to look in my wallet and gave him one of my postage stamps, so he could take care of his letter.
I felt good inside, refused money for the stamp, and just told him to "pay it forward." The feelings I had in giving this simple item are much greater than any materialistic item I could have attained as a reward.
