Encouraging Story from a Supporter

We recieved this encouraging message from Dawn. It is inspiring on so many levels ...

Donald was spotted on the streets by one of our Antonio's employees. She sent him into the restaurant and offered to buy him dinner on her tab after he shared with her how hungry and cold he was. When Donald came in I greeted him with a big smile and brought him over by the arm to pick out what he wanted to eat. Donald was completely freezing to the touch. We picked out his dinner and I brought him to a seat at the bar and got him everything he needed to enjoy his meal. His appreciation for the food and the warmth of "being able" to eat inside was so apparent as I looked in his eyes. I pulled up the stool next to him and was able to enjoy conversation with him while he ate. As we chat I learned so much about him and what's happening in his life. This is a man that is completely homeless. He is lost. His "home" is a tent out in the freezing cold. He has two hours of heat each night IF he has the money to fill his propane camping stove. He's an alcoholic and is "tired", exhausted of hitting rock bottom and wishes he could be "successful like me" he said. My heart was aching for him, how could I help this person when he's a grown man making these disastrous choices? My immediate thought was this...addiction is debilitating. It consumes you and takes away your mindful choices. My heart opened wide and my heart and my mouth were filled with all the right things to say to this man.
