Today I did something that was amazing. It wasn't anything big. Nothing that cost a lot. It was something that meant something to someone else. I bought the old fellow that was behind me in Starbucks a cup of coffe and a muffin. He patiently stood there while my children who were acting like squirrels around him. It turns out that this man was was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. He had just lost his wife, who he married right before he was shipped off to War in 1943. She apparently was his rock and that was so proud of him for serving so much that he continued in the service through the Korean War. She never complained. Loved him. When I told him our family's story, he quietly told me that we are a dying breed, the ones that love and support. He thanked me graciously for treating him to a cup of joe and a snack. I wished him a great day and went on my way. I know as I was walking out he sat there with a smile on his face. I would like to think that I had blessed his day a little and hopefully let him know that a perfect stranger can care.
With all the chaos that is happening, take pause and just do something simple for someone. As you never know when something unexpected will come your way.
