While eating the thought came to me to buy some food for the homeless lady I saw at the bus stop on my way by…it was just a thought I left without buying her anything.
And then as I am driving away I see man holding a sign “I’m very hungry” – at first I want to just keep driving but then I just simply asked him what he wanted his request was so simple a breakfast sandwich and a soda from the nearby Burger King.
I hit the drive-thru, fulfilled his order and Doug was very happy and appreciative and I’m feeling pretty good too!
Then I am driving home and I see the same homeless woman sitting at the bus stop that I saw before and I just felt I couldn’t skip her and I made a U-turn, pulled up at the same drive-thru and ordered her a breakfast sandwich and a coffee.
The woman at the drive-thru said “See you in 10 minutes?” with a smile. I just smiled back and said it was for my friend. Then I went to deliver breakfast to my sister at the bus stop.
When I dropped it off…just seeing her smile as she drank the warm coffee after sleeping out all night warmed my heart….
Now I share this not for you to say “oh look at what a wonderful thing “David did” – I share this to ask you to look into your heart the next time you see another human who is hungry and if you can offer them a meal, a word, your smile…You’ll find you receive way more than you give!
