Today at the department store jewelry counter, an older woman with a walker being waited on ahead of me admired the saleswoman's bracelet.
"That's just what I'm looking for," she said.
"Let's see what it looks like on you," said the saleswoman. She unclasped it from her wrist and wrapped and clasped it around the other woman's.
The older woman was delighted with how it looked.
"Keep it," said the saleswoman.
"Pay it forward," said the saleswoman.
"OK," the older woman said. "I'll say prayers for you."
"I need them," said the saleswoman. Then, "Just look at you smile."
