It takes so little to show compassion. A smile, a wave. Some kind of acknowledgement that this person exists. Going just a little further to prove they are worthwhile makes a huge impact on them. Everyone has a story and a need to be seen and heard.
How wonderful. I'm sure nobody really pays much attentio to him. That was really nice of you to give him your time and money. :0) ~Aurelia
I believe he was pleased with both the food and the company. You treated him like a human being which he is.
Your time given to the homeless person is priceless. You gave him the gift of hope by caring. Every homeless person was somebody at one time....a mother, father, uncle, brother, sister, child.
Hopefully, that one person will find the strength to seek help because you cared enough to make him feel like a human being again.
what a nice thinkg to do,,,at Wendy's over the weekend we gave a grandmother and grandchild the "credit cards" given us so they could enjoy another special day out
Good for you!! Tis the season to reach out to people in need. Bless You!
The beautiful thing about this story is not simply the feeding of one who is hungry -- it is the completeness of the interaction. Charity springs from many motivations; but kindness is about feeling connected to others. This story nicely illustrates the power of kindness.
I was homeless years ago and what I found was that I was discriminated against when people found out my situation. That's great that you took the time to share your time as well as a meal. Kind words can do wonders for the soul.
