Sometimes a simple act of kindness can be enough to change a person’s life. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of life when we have the opportunity to help each other at some point.
Someone on Reddit using the username Nvidator shared their story online.
The man wrote that he noticed a man and his dog sitting on the sidewalk behind the building.
“Last week I had breakfast at Chik-fil-a. While sitting in my truck for food, I noticed a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk with his dog. He held a sign asking for money or food donations to feed himself and his dog (he didn’t look like a drug addict or a drunk. Most likely he was an unlucky elderly man).
I watched him the whole time I ate my breakfast. He basically sat there scratching his mutt and holding a sign while people passed by, not paying attention to them.
The man kept saying that after he finished his breakfast, he decided to buy something for the man.
He stopped next to them and handed the food to the man.
He also gave him a small bag of dog food that he had.
The homeless man was grateful that they were treated humanely.
The man was grateful for the food, but most of all he was touched when he was handed a small bag of dog food.
Afterward, the man said it had been so long since someone had treated him like a human being.
Nvidator asked him if he was ready to work for a decent salary.
The man immediately straightened up and said he would be the hardest worker he had ever seen.
They agreed to meet at the same place the next morning to go to work.
While working, the man explained that he had lost his wife in a car accident. That he has lost his home and that he has no children or family.
He was staying at a campsite, and a lot of things were stolen from him.
Now, with the money he earned, he could afford to buy camping supplies. So neither he nor his dog had to sleep on the cold ground.
