I was going to blog about going on vacation today. Actually, I'm on the road again to Wisconsin this morning.
Anyway, I saw something on Thursday that warmed my heart. I saw some people selling raffle tickets for cars to benefit Children's Memorial Hospital. Nothing unusual about that. They do it every year.
What was unusual was one businessman stopped and shook one of the volunteers' hands and said something like, "Thanks for being out here."
Another few blocks later, the same businessman put some coins in one of the street person's cups and went on his way.
He probably had no idea he'd left an impression on me, but he did. All I could think was Wow, this is a nice man.
Have you encountered anyone who does something simple which made an impact on you? Maybe you can think of how to fit something like this in a book you're writing to show and not tell the goodness of a person. Or, maybe another author written something that made an impact. Please share.
