As I was driving home, I couldn't help feeling guilty that he was walking in the heat and I was driving in my not quite working air conditioned car. I would have offered him a ride had I not been by myself with my two boys, but I still felt guilty. I do know; however, that this moment of the man's tear filled eyes giving me a heartfelt thank you for warm water from my trunk will indeed stick with me for a long time.
I also saw another man sitting on the corner by the exit from the store. He held a sign that said, "Anything is a Blessing."
There's my humbling moment for the day. I've never been comfortable giving the men and women on the corners money so today I've decided to assemble a few kits to give out to those that are in need. Whether it be a water bottle, a toothbrush, and few granola bars, or $1. Anything is a blessing.
Would you care to join me? In blessing the lives of those less fortunate than us.
Here's a list of items that I thought would be good to assemble into a gallon bag and give out.
Don't forget "Anything is a Blessing."
Soap- liquid or bar
Comb or Brush
Shampoo and Conditioner
Comb or brush
Hand sanitizer wipes
Granola bars/Trail mix/ Crackers and cheese/ Apple/ Yogurt Raisins (really anything that doesn't require heating or refrigeration)
What would you have done? Would you have given the elderly man a ride home? Or the man on the corner, what would you do?
Any other ideas to add to the list?
