What you give away...

I am sure all of you have been approached by someone that appears to be homeless. They always ask me for some change. I can be standing in a crowd of 15 people and they always come up to me. I guess I have a nice face or something. I usually give them a buck or two.

The other day I was on the ramp off of I-24 at Shelby Street. There was an older guy holding a sign. I rolled down my window, handed him a ten dollar bill and had a great conversation with him. I think I made his day.

I was at a bank on West End yesterday. The lady seemed nice, so I started a conversation with her about how blessed we all are. As I left, I said, "God bless you". She said, "Thanks, I needed just made my day."

I am not telling these stories to make myself look good, I'm just saying that I think we should take the time to make someone's day. Sometimes all it takes is a smile or a kind word.

I believe it comes back to you ten fold.

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
