A True Gift
--by Melissa.marie.mi, posted May 2, 2021
The gift card was for the department store, where they had clothes and groceries and beer and whatever he might need. I gave it to him.
Later as I was shopping the grocery section, I ran into him with a female friend pushing a cart. He said the card had $25 on it and thanked me. In his cart, he had bread and cheese and some sandwich meat.
His friend asked if I gave him the card. I said yes. She said, "Thank you so much. You don't know what this means for us."
I felt blessed I could help them out, and that $25 gift card was going to make a difference for them for what they needed rather than just be used for something we wanted while browsing the store.
