I went to the gas station for a pack of smokes. There was a homeless man in front emptying his cart on the sidewalk. I bought my smokes and walked out. The man asked me if he could get one from me and I said ok. I asked him if he was looking for something and he said he couldn't find his blanket. It was around 30 outside. I told him to hold on a second. I opened the trunk of my car and took out the blanket I keep in there for emergencies. I handed it to him and asked if he'd like a cup of hot coffee. He said yes so I went in the store and bought him one. He kept thanking me and I said it wasn't a problem. Told him just to keep safe and warm. I hope he found shelter out of the cold last night.

    I am not sure what is more beautiful, if your gesture, or your anonimity. Yours is a truly great soul. Thank you. :)

    There is this idea going around that you should do 26 acts of random kindness for the 26 kids that were shot in Connecticut. Today I stopped and talked to the guy that what sitting at the exit of the ***** mall where I go to get groceries and pet food. This is hard for me because I am number one shy around strangers and number two I always feel like some kind of fake Holy Joe type or something I don't know why, talking to the homeless like I am so great. You let your insecurities get in the way and you won't do anything. But, I talked to him and gave him money for a hamburger he said he had come to my state to look for work but couldn't find any. I said I wish you the best of luck and drove off. That was act of kindness number one, now just got to think of 25 more. It's cool that other people are doing this too. I think homeless people must feel really invisible sometimes everyone seems to look right through them. It's a huge problem in my town Colorado Springs they are drawn here for some reason. I don't know what the answer is for their life. But, random kindness. I felt better after doing that.

    That was very kind of you. There are definitely many kind and compassionate people out there, it's just the bad ones we always hear about.
