I know – it’s -20 degrees outside, but our team just needed to get out for lunch. Call us crazy. But, if I would have stayed in my heated office, I would have missed a moment of human compassion.
As I was sitting in my car warming it up for my coworkers, I saw a young woman – probably in her twenties – get out of her car and tie a winter scarf to the bus stop outside of Aurora Sinai Medical Center. It seemed strange to me.
I went up to look at it and, on it, I saw this sticker that read:
“This is NOT lost. If you are waiting for the bus and need this scarf to warm up, it is yours. Stay warm. God Bless.”
By the time I came back from lunch, the scarf was gone. Someone must have needed it.
This random act of kindness was a blessing for someone who really needed it. It was warmth and generosity on a bitterly cold day.
This simple act of giving changed lives – mine, the person freezing at the bus stop and the generous woman who choose to share.
How will you change a life today?
