Love is the answer!
No matter how much we may think our lives are not as great as they should be, it seems we always tend to forget those folks who are way less fortunate than us. Just because our day is going badly and we may not be able to afford that new car or Flat screen TV we for get that there are those out there who can’t even afford to eat.
Here is a perfect example from a friend of mine on Facebook.
“As I sat in my car eating some tacos I had gotten from the Taqueria, i see this lady staring at me while i sat in my car. While she walked closer and closer to my car, I was finishing up on one of my tacos. I knew she was trying to get my attention. As two younger girls came out of the store, they handed her some change. As she turned her body I notice she had her catheter bag underneath her arm. As she started to walk away, I ran down my window and asked her if she was hungry and she said yes but She wanted to get an ice cream from inside because her throat was hurting but the man wouldn’t let her in w the catheter exposed. I ended up helping this sweet lady w food, a black bag to put her catheter bag in and bought her a frozen fruit ice cream for her throat. Poor thing has cancer and says all shelters she’s been at are full in this area.”
I remember those days when I had a few cents to my name and walking by the Hamburger Place on the corner smelling the great aroma of the food cooking on the grill. Peering in and watching the happy faces of everyone inside enjoying their double cheese burger with a large order of fries and a large drink and thinking how great that must be when had only a few cents in my pocket.
Then I thought about those people less fortunate than I, YES, they exist. People who had NO Pennies in their pockets. Some didn’t have pockets at all because the clothes they wear are so tattered and old that the pockets have worn through. Those folks who haven’t eaten in days because they just don’t have the money or may be ill and can not work, much less afford a decent meal. Then my situation just didn’t seem as dire at all.
No matter what situation this story finds you in today remember, work through it as best you can to find a solution that will get you by to the next day. If your the person without the funds, Pray.
If your the person with funds then think twice about those less fortunate that yourself and do what ever you can to assist those who have less or none.
The message has always been for us to help each other. For those of us who have to help those who have not, not matter what the reason. Love is the answer.
Just another Point of View.
