Compassionate Heart of a Child

Yesterday when driving home we stopped by the grocery store to get some needed things for supper. When heading home on a side street we spotted a man who had a sign that said that he was hungry and in need of help. I said, thinking out loud, "I don't have any cash on me!" Abby spoke up, "Daddy, we have the care package that I made up in the back." I pulled over and Abby got out and gave it to him. He said with a grateful, but sad look on his face, "Thank you and God bless you!" Abby said as she got into the car, "I hope that we put a Bible in the Care Package!" Abby made two care packages up about a year ago and put the items in a ziplock bag and stored them in the back of the car. She had kleenex, hand sanitizer, toothbrush, hair soap, chemical hand warmers and money from her allowance that she put in the bag. I was, needless to say, very humbled by Abby's act of kindness.
