Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The sweet man that calls my heart to give


--by paolagast, posted Feb 21, 2016
I was buying some things I needed for dinner at the grocery store so that I can cook a special meal for my family.   As I was driving away, I saw out of the corner of my eye the sweet man that sometimes sits by the door at the store hoping someone will give him some change. I had already started driving, but I couldn't not go back and buy him lunch.  I do this whenever I see him, and this time would be no different. 

So I went around the block and picked up a deli sandwich, a potato salad and a bottle of juice. I went back to him and gave him his lunch.  As always, his eyes sparkled with happiness and gratitude, and I left thinking that I was very fortunate to have gone at the time I went to the grocery store.  Two minutes earlier ,and I would have missed him. I look forward to the day I don't see him in that corner again because I will know he has found a way to sustain himself. In the mean time, I will keep my eyes open so I can provide a hot meal whenever I see him ❤️
