I am so happy for you, Yvonne! You deserve lots of little moments like this. My favorite RAK was giving a homeless man Christmas. I have not shared this story because of how most people judge homeless, mentally ill folks....I saw him daily for several weeks as he set up camp by an abandoned store in an abandoned strip mall. He never bothered anyone, did not beg or post signs, made his bed every day, kept his "home" neat and slept in the cold and rain under some eaves. He had found a dirty mattress he was using and he appeared to be mentally ill and talked to himself, too. As I was driving home from work on Christmas eve, I was moved to do something for him. So my hubby and I sent shopping for a waterproof sleeping bag, blankets, pillows, clean sheets, toiletries, non-perishable foods, a radio and lots of batteries (he would sing as he cleaned), a hot home cooked meal and some money in a card. My husband and I took all those items to him. He was afraid of us and ran, so we loudly told him these were gifts for Christmas and that we would leave the gifts under the eaves for him and hoped God would bless him further. The next day we drove by and saw that he had used everything we gave him and was proudly sitting in the sun in the folding chair we had also given him. Everything was unpacked and arranged neatly and his bed was now made with clean sheets, blankets and he had a sleeping bag to stay warm. The best part was for the first time, he was smiling. He was looking up to the sun as the light shined down on him as if he were the richest man in the world. At that moment, I was the richest woman in the world! Hugs Yvonne.
