Today at Wal-Mart there was a guy standing in the cold wind with a sign that he is out of work and has kids. I parked and went in, did my shopping then got in my car to leave. I was driving past him on my way out and made the decision to go park again not far from where he was standing. I knew I had to do something and remembered I had a Wal-Mart card in my wallet that I’d bought a few weeks ago for a friend’s birthday, so I pulled it out and walked over to give it to him. He thanked me many times and put it in his pocket and asked me if I knew of any work. He said he does lawn care and should have work in a couple of weeks but right now it’s rough.
I told him of a place with a sign that they are hiring and as I was talking with him one car stopped and passed him a dollar an another car stopped and a girl hopped out with 2 bags of groceries for him. It was great to be in the middle of a random act of kindness and have more 2 happen. Bam bam bam! I talked with him a bit and then gave him a couple of hugs and went on my way. His name is Cody. – Patty 🙂
