“I got back to Dallas yesterday after a two week trip and the first thing that hit me was the scorching heat! A forty degree change in temperature, almost hitting a hundred degrees Farenheit. My friend and I went to have an ice cream at our favourite store. Once we had placed the orders I told the man behind the counter I wanted to pay for an extra ice-cream sundae and told him to give it to the next person who asked for one, along with the smile card. We were still enjoying ours when we saw the next person get their free sundae. And it was delivered with a smile card too! It was worth it to see her smile when she was told that the order has already been paid for. I bet it made a very hot day here in big D a little bit cooler for her. It sure made ours!” –innerjourney
