This Monday at Goodwill, I was approached by a young woman asking for help. She said she was homeless, jobless and has been wearing the same clothes for days. She didn't want cash but all she requested is that I buy her a set of clothes. I happily obliged and told her to go pick out a couple of things.
Let me just say that I am that person to doubt people. I do not trust strangers. But when that woman was talking to me, it was obvious she was desperate. She picked out two pairs of pants and two shirts for a total of $9.00. I spend more than that in gas just to get to/from work. $9.00 is nothing to me, but for her it was something.
God always has a plan. His plan was not only to help someone in need but it was to open my eyes to see how lucky I am. These past two years have been a hard time in my life and I have definitely given myself a pity party. Meeting her made me realize my problems are nothing compared to what she has to deal with.
I hope that sometime in the future, everybody gets to experience what I was able too. Cause I can guarantee you that it will change your life.
