Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Weekend Kindness

--by Bluebell, posted Jan 5, 2014
Yesterday was baking day, so there was a lot of baking and sharing of almond cakes. Today I went to a little convenience store in my town and at the door there was this man sitting on the floor looking very under the weather with a sign saying "It's my B'day help please." I had nothing on me, so I did my shopping and just hoped he would stay there by the time I finished what needed to do. I bought him some chocolate and joined a bank note. When I left the shop he was still there so I started a little conversation, he said he was from Glasgow and that he was homeless, my heart went to him, no one should be homeless, we should all have right to shelter in some shape of form. I gave him the chocolate and the cash and when he looked at the bank note, he said "are you sure?" I said "yes, it is your birthday gift" Then he said, you know it is really my birthday, I was born on the 16th of August 1970, and this is the best present I received today. In my heart I knew that he was telling the truth even when it was just a scribble written in a piece of cardboard. There are things one just knows. Now that I am writing this story I realize that my brother was born in 1970, he could be my brother ... he probably is someone's brother ... My wish for him is that he gets his life sorted out and finds a place he can call home.
