Today as I was walking out of the shops with the kids, we saw a man standing at the centre’s sliding doors asking passers-by for money. Many turned the other way, avoiding eye contact with him & I said no to an offer of money too but then I thought & really looked at this sorry soul standing in front of me. I said I wouldn’t give him any money but I would buy him a meal. So I walked him into a café & bought him a lunchtime pasta meal. The waitress had tears in her eyes to say how thoughtful I was & so did another customer. I’m not writing this to get a pat on the back but I’m thankful for my life, husband & children. Yes life is crappy at times & you have to take the good with the bad but there’s people out there who’s life is just awful. Have any others MoMs done random acts of kindness too?
