There are times when a small act of kindness can not be a big deal for the person who does, but may affect the recipient in a larger way. Something similar happened when a college student decided to pay for a stranger’s coffee and something beautiful happened later.

Mackenzie Mauller 19, from Union Town, Ohio, went into Starbucks and paid for a woman who was behind her, a gesture commonly practiced in barista chain as a “pay-forward” initiative. The lady was so touched by Mauller’s sweet act that she surprised her with a handwritten letter and opened how her gesture made her sail during a very difficult time.

“Thanks for the coffee! I rarely go to Starbucks and treat myself, but in recent months has been bit of a fight, “read the letter. “My father just went away and he was also my babysitter. My family and my children have had a really hard time. This morning my childcare call was sick and I had to take free time. I decided to buy my children breakfast and get me coffee with total debt because i will be a mom at home for a while, “add it.
You are so welcome !!! 💛💛💛  – Mackenzie (@ mackey2399) August 10, 2018
The handwritten note from the woman, whose name is Nicole Clawson, also commented on her post and wrote: “This has been so good learning for them, how to treat others, whatever they are. They are happy to pay forwards and treat others with kindness and selflessness. “
By the way, my children have been aware of and apart from the beginning. This has been such a good learning opportunity for them, how to treat others, no matter what. They are happy to pay it further and treat others with kindness and selflessness.

I have seen this first hand. Honestly, you have no idea how something that is as small as buying someone’s coffee can literally cause a multitude of emotions at the end of the recipient. It’s a little rewarding to be kind to others 🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/1VE8bwFrJm

It’s America I grew to love, can we get it back? Neighbors look after neighbors, strangers looking for strangers. To be kind and considerate to others. https://t.co/0scSvQz2Z7

It’s amazing! I do the same exact things! I always remember to “pay forwards”. This world can use more people like you and me, especially today! ❤️❤️❤️

No good deed is small when it is finished with love. It’s not as much money as it costs, because it’s the meaning behind it and what a kind of deed does to lift the spirit of others during an extremely difficult time.
