Life Story Saturday: A Cup of Cold Water

Today, a homeless man poked his head in the front door of our donut shop just before we closed for the evening. He asked for a tall glass of clean drinking water so he could share it with a friend who’s feeling “dehydrated.” I gave him two large cups of water and the 16 leftover donuts we had sitting in our display case. He was extremely grateful. And I watched as he walked outside to a homeless woman sitting out front. She smiled and gave him a huge hug.

What can you do today to brighten someone’s day?
