Today in New Mexico I was driving with my left foot as one does, although Kember requested I stop at the next gas station because she had to pee. So I pull off and we are faced to a very deserted town with not much there but abandoned buildings, a gas station, a hotel and a bunch of other things you would find in a town that has more or less 10 people in it.
Ater we fill Vandy with gas for 2.29 a gallon!! I mean what a steal! Nothing like that 4 bucks a gallon in California. So we were all set and happy to continue on the road to El Paso. Kember driving now as we go to pull out of the gas station we see a homeless man sitting with his dog. We both look at each other and know what to do. I jump to the back of the van grabbing food to throw in a bag. I hop out of Vandy and run across the street to talk to this man and meet his dog who I soon learn his name is Patches. Although our act to stop and give this man food most likely made his day. I think it made our day just as much. Every time we do this I feel like I’m high on life. That this small thing we just did filled me with joy.
That’s all I really have for this story. Just a small sweet one that made my day. I hope you can go out there and make someone’s day. You would be surprised how little moments and make someone happy and change their day, a simple door hold, complimenting someone’s shoes even a smile and a hello. I think we all should do that more often.
Have a wonderful day:)
