it's not about the money...

There is no other feeling like that of witnessing how a simple gesture can touch someone's heart. This happened on Saturday when Ed handed a check to the man who was making our front steps. It was more than he quoted Ed and the gratitude I heard in Larry's voice turned my insides to mush. It also turned my heart to mush seeing that my husband sensed that this man could use the extra money and followed through on helping him and in turn helping his family. Ed was blessing someone else and in turn was blessed himself. There really is nothing like being able to help someone else.

That's awesome! I've been in both situations - the giver and receiver - and it's such a blessing. You've got a really thoughtful and ... I can't think of the word, but 'aware' husband! :)

(intuitive? Ug. It's late.)

Anyway, YAY for being able to be a blessing! :)

That's so cool that Ed saw that need and was able to meet it. :)
