All Bundled Up in a Wheelchair
--by Aurelia, posted Oct 13, 2008
Yesterday I went to the card shop with my friend. She went about her shopping and I did mine. We met at the register and paid. Walking together we approached the exit door.
There was a little old soul in a wheelchair, just inside the doorway of the store. She was wrapped up with a blanket, hat and scraf, which was around her face. All we could see were her eyes peeking out. I couldn't help but wave to her as we approached the exit door. I smiled really big and said, "Enjoy your day!" I could not see her mouth for her smile because of the scarf, but her eyes were dancing!
My friend said, "Who was that?" I replied, "I don't know." She said she thought I knew the lady because I was waving as we approached her and I spoke to her. I said, "No, I don't know her, but I'm sure she had mixed emotions about being out today on a cold day. Having to be so bundled to stay warm and then being left at the door like that by whoever brought her shopping. I just wanted her to know it's ok and that I noticed her underneath all those wrappings."
Make kindness come naturally to you.
If we are God's children then these are our brothers and sisters.
I'm sure your Heavenly Father smiled when you recognised another one of his children, Aurelia.
