What you gave the man was happiness which god intended us to do always. Thanks for sharing the story. Wishing you strength and happiness to be kind always.
A seemingly small gesture on our part would be a big change in someone else's life.
Joy, you bought such joy to that person. Giving doesnot mean only money. Anything which brings happiness to others will do.
That's a really nice thought. thanks for inspiring me to do something as simple and generoud as that. i'm sure that was a very beautiful day.
This reminded me of something I used to do some 20 years ago. It was a very cold winter in Salinas, Ca. I would go to the Dollar Store and buy mittens, knitted hats, and gloves. Whenever I would drive around and notice a homeless person without one of these items, I would ask if they would like one. I received such a blessing to see their face light up, as I would drive away I'd call out to them and say, GOD BLESS YOU. It made me feel good that not only their body, but soul would be warmer over such an inexpensive item. On Friday nights I go to the bakery and buy day old donuts and offer them to the teenage boys skateboarding in the parking lot. If I had extra I get them a hot chocolate. Those were the happiest days of my life.

You found out that when you give from the heart, it is accepted from the receiver's heart. Nice going!
