Paying it forward

I took my mom’s dog to the Alta Sierra Veterinary Clinic, which luckily was open at 6:30 p.m., for a small wound that needed stitches. While we were in the room, a man came in the office for something and paid for our visit without knowing how strapped for cash my mother was. It was a blessing because my mom is battling cancer and frequently commutes to the Bay Area for chemo and doctor visits and couldn’t afford this vet bill. I love how kind strangers can be for no personal reason or motive. I will be paying it forward.
