#WarmWed: You Don't Need A Reason To Help People (by True Diva)

          Hey Blacktopia family, sorry I haven't been as active  as I should be I just have a lot going on.  I'm still trying to find a venue for the youth talk as well as different events I'm involved in, but I did want to share something that happened yesterday.  I had to explain this to my kids, and my kids told me "mommy you have a real big heart," and I told them you don't need a reason to help anyone.  I was just taking my kids to Bojangles just to get something to eat, (was not in a cooking mood) when we were coming out an older lady was outside and she said "ma'am can you please spare some change so I can get something to eat", I went to my car told my kids to get in the car, I grabbed my bag and I asked her are "you hungry", now mind you she had a cigar in her hand that she just got from somebody, but as soon as I asked are you hungry she said "yes" and she dropped the cigar on the ground and went into the store with me.

          I told her to order what she wanted.  She ordered one of the smaller meals I guess trying not to overdo it or show that she's really hungry or whatever, but I bought her enough that it would have been leftovers for the next day.  She kept saying thank you even the workers will look in strange and I told her she didn't thank me this is what I was supposed to do one of the workers that AMEN, it's a crying shame when people just walk past another human being or look down on a person like they don't exist when they're asking for spare change just to get something to eat, it burns a hole in my soul when that happens so I said that to say this....   I always say this you don't need a reason to help someone you don't need a reason to be kind and courteous to someone even if you don't know because at the end of the day you never know when you may be on the other side of the table asking for help dealing with the person that's going to look down on you the way you make look down on someone else, it's just ridiculous, I told my boys don't show kindness because you're looking for something in return you do it because it's the right thing to do, but I can tell you what, she wasn't hungry yesterday and I don't think she's hungry today God bless her.
