  1. I try to do something that will help someone, or show genuine kindness daily,

    Tuesday, on my way to the store, there was a homeless man, with his dog, on the side of the road holding a sign asking for food.

    Being disabled, I don’t drive much anymore, only to the grocery store and back, but I knew I had to help. I turned around and came back home. I made him 2 sandwiches, and packed bags of chips and nuts in a bag. Then I went to the grocery store and bought his poor, skinny dog a bag of dog food. I then went to the subway, by the grocery store, and bought a 20.00 gift certificate.

    When I stopped and gave everything to him, he cried. I told him about the homeless shelters downtown, and that our local charter service would take him there.

    I wish I could have done more.

    Baby steps. If we would all just help out a little?

    1. As someone who works with men who are homeless, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for this extraordinary act of kindness and for sharing such a beautiful story! You did so very much for this man and his dog, and it surely made a positive difference. Thank you so much, and I hope that you have inspired others to help those in need!

  2. This week I published one of my quotes: “The power of love lies in what we do for others, not in what we expect others to do for us.” It is the most uplifting and fullfilling power to give, to make someone smile, to helps spontaneously. Wonderful post! Thank you!

      1. I love the stories about the incredible gentlemen at the day shelter…what an honor it must be to be with them every day. I need to make a visit soon. I remember meeting a lot of your guests when I was there with the Coalition For The Homeless and I remember how much they made me smile and sometimes tear up by their actions.
