Interesting things that caught my eye.

"Happiness... consists in giving, and in serving others." - Henry Drummond


      I was at Albertsons running some errands and I was waiting in line behind a guy that seemed to be homeless. He was purchasing a few items that was already placed in a plastic bag (I presumed some food). He was talking
to the cashier about trying to earn money to find a home and that he still had hope. He pays for his things with a few dollars and he pulls out a Reese's Peanut Butter Candy out of his plastic bag to give it to the cashier. He says "You're such a hard worker, you deserve one." She of course says "No no no, you deserve it Thank you, you are too nice."

After a few moments he ended up persuading her to take it. He starts to leave out the door while I pay for my items. She says "Last year he was in a wheel chair, and I'm glad he is out walking again." I paid for my items and saw him talking to one of the Salvation Army ladies out in the front of the store. I get to my car and he rides his bike right past me and I tell him "Hold on a second sir, I something for you." I reached in my car and gave him a bag of snacks I had that I was going to donate. He was so appreciative and just sat there for a second on his bike. He rode off and said "Bless you."

"Being rich is not about how much you have, but how much you can give."
