I was leaving the grocery store and there was a lady asking for help. She was well dressed, clean, so my first thought was "she doesn't need help". But I went to ask her why she was there...she told me she wasn't being able to pay her bills lately...she was from NY and still adapting to life here ( I am in California)...she didn't have a full time job and needed urgent money to pay her electricity bill. I gave her some money, but what was really beautiful was the long and emotional hug we gave each other...it was LOVE, the same I feel for my family and friends...and, once again, I felt how easy it is to do the right thing. We don't know each other's name, but THAT HUG will be in our hearts forever. <3
