Today for our kindness advent we over payed for a Contributor newspaper. The Contributor is a local non profit whose venders and a lot of their writers too are currently or formally homeless. Each vendor keeps whatever profit they make from the newspapers they sell. I’m personally a huge fan. This is coming along side people and helping them by providing work. And it’s not easy work. I can only imagine what it feels like to walk a day in their shoes.
As we drove towards Target there was Mr Rob out in the rain selling his newspapers. He always smiles, he always chats, our kids know him by name and he is always so sweet to them and he works hard. This rainy day was the perfect day to pay a little extra for our paper.
Tomorrow is one of my most favorites. I don’t think I’ll ever take it off our list because it is always so interesting to see how the person whose gas we pump reacts. I get all nervous and excited. Tomorrow will be a good day.
