Hot Drinks For Cold Vendors


--by khillcrest68, posted Aug 12, 2013
One cold winter morning, on my way to get my hair done, I decided to go to Dunkin Donuts first and get a cup of coffee.
 
When I stopped at the red light I noticed a guy there selling newspapers and I thought, wow, it is too cold to be standing out here selling papers, he must really need the money bad. Then I thought, maybe he does, and how many others are in the same position? 
 
So, when I pulled up to Dunkin Donuts I counted my money. After paying for my hair I would have $17 left. So, I  went inside and got ten cups of hot coffee. Then I went to every corner where there was someone selling papers and gave them each a cup of coffee. 
 
They were so happy and grateful. Their smiles really made me happy - and I ended up with one for myself! 
 
It is a blessing to be a blessing.
