RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS ~ Week #1
His name is Rick. He was heading down our street looking for recyclables on garbage pick up day. Don struck up a conversation with him and I saw my Friday Random Act of Kindness right in front of me. I ask Rick if he would like a bag of homemade cookies. You can see the smile and was happy to let me get a picture of him with Don and Molly and his bag of cookies.
In our very mobile society, I have often thought "The only wheels some of these homeless have is a shopping Cart." Sometimes it breaks my heart when I see how much I've been blessed with. Home, family, 2 cars, electricity and all the hot water I want. It causes me to count my blessing every day, and if I can do some small act of kindness...bring it on. In this case a few recyclables and a bag of cookies.
In our house, the cookie jar is always full and ready to give some away.
