    ascherer - What a wonderful a far reaching effect their act of kindness will have on all the other people you touch with future similar acts. And it just so happens that this week is Random Act of Kindness Week so the timing is perfect!

    Faye - Thanks. Our Anniversary is still a month away. I too saw this as a lovely gesture. I also understand there comes a point in a marriage were a nice dinner out no longer has to be just you two even on a holiday like this. I will pay this one forward multiple times in the coming years of our marriage.

    ascherer - what a lovely gesture on their part to include you in their dinner so you could get a table! I love stories of kindness like this. And congratulations on your upcoming 25th wedding anniversary! That is wonderful!!

    I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day.

    I have to say a huge Thank You to the couple that made our Valentine's dinner more fun. Do to an late afternoon obligation, we did not have a reservation anywhere. We tried to go to a big name place but the parking lot was so horrific I told DH just to get us out of there. We ended up at a little Italian place in Cary thinking it wouldn't be that busy. If you didn't have a reservation - it was. A couple that we are causal friends with, saw our problem and asked the Host to seat us with them even though they had almost finished their dinner. They stayed with us and we had a great time together. I Thank You very much. They will celebrate their 32nd Anniversary this year and it will be our 25th in a month. As the younger couple, we will pay that forward.
