#LiA Made My DAY!

On my errands this am, I saw a young woman begging. I had forgotten my bag of goods for people begging before, and strongly got that I needed to have it today. SO glad I listened to that still, small voice!
I chose to hand her two items I had in it ~ a granola bar, and a bag of Famous Amos cookies. She TOTALLY flipped!!
“Dude, I LOVE these cookies!!”
Then she instantly ripped open the bag and started eating. She looked sadly at the one that fell on the ground in her haste. On a busy street down in the Little Italy area of Baltimore City, I could understand her not wanting to scoop it up. But seeing and feeling the JOY and excitement she felt, the light that small bag of cookies brought to her? FEELING her heart in that moment? Bliss. Day = MADE!!
How simple is it to make a difference? Today, it was a single serving sized bag of chocolate chip cookies. What do you think it would take to make a difference for you?
Trust me ~ you really DO get a lot when you give 😉
