This Simple Act Of Kindness Left Her Feeling Connected and In Tears

As I was putting books up for our book sale, I glanced up and there were a small group of homeless people sitting in chairs near the door. One man caught my eye and he seemed to start to look down, almost as if he were embarrassed or ashamed. I locked eyes with him and smiled, and he just beamed back at me. I got tears in my eyes and waved to him before ducking back into the volunteer room trying not to cry.
I hear such negative stuff sometimes from library patrons about these down-on-their-luck people; how they smell bad, or shouldn't be there in the library, etc. and as I glanced at this one man, all I could think of was how beautiful he was. I wish that others who have such bad attitudes could open their hearts. All it takes sometimes is a smile, and another human being might feel cared for, at least for a moment.
All living beings have divine spark within. because of their past karma they are going through hard times. People who think, speak or do something bad about forget they are doing same to divinity within them. Will God be happy? You did a good job. Thanks for sharing and caring. May God always bless you.
