I’m crying ya’ll…

As I’m walking up to my favorite coffee shop I see a woman with tons of bags going inside. It was obvious that she was having a very hard day…so I spent $20 on a small coffee.

Well…I spent 4, gave 5 to the bartender/barista (which is way more than normal), turned around and asked the lady if she was ok. She looked like she was about to cry,”well it’s my birthday-” I handed her the $11 I had left and said “Happy Birthday”. Ya’ll…..

She got the pyramid cake. She got cake on her birthday! I helped someone get cake on her birthday! A total Stranger gets to celebrate her existence on a super difficult day because I did something nice.

Ya’ll…

I help homeless people pretty regularly with food or little care packages but this…this thing that I did today…

Felt better than all of that.

Update: I asked her if I could take her to the local mental health hospital because it’s a place I know could help. She couldn’t answer me right away so I told her to think about it. Now shes napping on and off. Idk..I offered. I’ll feel bad if I walk away…
