Have you ever had a feeling so deep inside your heart that if almost feels like anxiety. After you complete an action that satisfies this feeling perhaps a different emotion takes over, like warmth or gratitude. Not to long ago I had an experience that sparked those emotions. My last week has been hectic like any other "regular" week. I happened to stop by and donate blood. Something I usually do but because of my schedule, I have not done it as much. So even though I was exhausted, my heart was screaming for this action. When I got home I felt good about my day. It was definitely better.
Friday afternoon came by and I was ready to spoil myself to a nice dinner and some quiet time. I pulled in to the grocery store and made my way to the store. "Excuse me Miss," said a man. I turned around and saw a man with desperation on his face. He was not dressed for this cold bitter weather. "Would you be so kind as to helping me buy some food. I just arrive to this country and I am hungry," he said. I bought triple of what I was expecting to buy and gave him food. I left and he had they eyes of a child opening a present.
Many, many years ago, my father was a field worker in California. I heard stories that some time ago he had to do the same thing to survive in this country. The man I saw at the grocery story reminded me of my father. I did not question if his story was true or not. I just did what my heart was telling me too.
Would you do the same? Would you have done something different? Have you ever experienced a need this great? Have know anybody that may have gone through this?
Tell me your story :)
