The other day I was in the Dollar General in Hamburg waiting on gymnastics to be over... there was this lady in front of us... all she had was a loaf of bread.... when the lady rang it up she realized that she had the wrong "card!?!" Anyway, the woman in front of her was getting her bags together... heard her saying this so she turned around and.. she paid $3 for this lady to have a loaf of bread! You DO NOT see that very often IF EVER these days....
Today I had about 30 minutes to spare before I had to pick Dalton up from WEE school, so I ran by to visit with a girl that I work for. I had just been there yesterday working, but we did not get to visit alot really. We had some excitement that I will not get into, but I will tell you that I have not been able to get her or her husband off of my mind. Her husband is at home dying of cancer.... Hospice is coming in everyday. He is only 54. He is at the point that he can't hold his head up or even walk, but he does know you and will talk to you.... the cancer is now in his spine. So, while she is there by his side the outside world just keeps right on going... she sits there ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT with him and is having a really hard time. Just the look on her face today was very touching to me... she was so glad that I had stopped by. I am not saying that I am the only visitor, but during the day there are not a lot of people because of their work schedule.
Remember that people need your help, but better yet your time!!! Stop by and put in a light bulb that they can't reach or aren't able to climb up to get to, go and fill their car up with gas for them, run errands for them...offer to do something! Most of the time you are going to find that they just want you to visit with them. Remember that some people do not have family that are close to them to do these things.... or that just flat out not do it for them! Just remember that the little things are what means the most.
What do you do to help people? What have you seen someone do that has touched you? If you can't answer this then I challenge you to go and visit with someone that needs your time... 15-30 minutes of your time and you will really be surprised how you can touch someone.
