Everyday Heroes

Everyday Heroes
are everywhere.

I was talking with a friend/work colleague
on the phone just yesterday.

She was driving into town for a meeting,
and we were discussing the agenda.

All of the sudden, she interrupted our conversation,
“Hold on…. Hold on!”

And then I heard her shout in a friendly tone,
“Sir!  Sir! Here you go?”

“My hands are so cold!”
I heard a male voice say.

“There are gloves in here
and some food and a little bit of money.”

My friend – an everyday woman on her way to the office –
swerved to the side of the road to hand a homeless man a bag.

You see, she carries several with her in her car at all times
and hands them out when she sees someone in need.

Everyday hero –  that’s what you are!
My friend, you never cease to amaze me.

And we can all be heroes…
everyday heroes…

It only takes one small act of kindness
to spread a great amount of love!

What can you do today?
What WILL you do today?

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. I do the same. I have one little bottle of water, one granola bar, crackers and a baggy with one dollar in change in each bag. And I give these out when I’m driving and people are on the streets asking for money. Having to look for money in my car when I want to help someone was proving completely fruitless and the look on a certain gentleman’s face when I nodded my head “no” after looking for money, broke my heart. So I went home and made these bags. It’s not a lot, but it’s something.
