I LOVE YOU ANDERSON COOPER
Another instance where I should be doing my homework lol.
There’s this couple w/ 2 kids that live in my apartment and the couple always fought. And today, the wife gave my mom some children’s medicine and it turns out that they’re (the family except for the husband) moving. My mom asked where. The lady said that they’re homeless now & have to stay at a hotel. So then later, my mom feeling the urge to do something gives them a check for $60 w/ a Christian track. And when she gave the money to the oldest son (cause the mom wasn’t around at the time), he was so grateful and said that they really needed this and that it’ll help for the hotel they’ll try to get into and cried. Then later, the mom sees my mom and hugs her tight and started crying and thanking her.
I’m so proud of my mom.
I should be doing my math homework right now, but I really just feel overwhelmed. Not because of homework. I feel overwhelmed in a good way with a different reason. After getting side-tracked with listening and watching Tori Kelly’s Fill A Heart, I had this huge urge to look at opportunities to do something to encourage and help out military troops, starving children, and those in orphanages through writing letters. Just to be able to maybe put a smile on someone’s face in other parts of the world or in my neighborhood is something that I want to jump into right away. I don’t know about other people, but I love and feel loved receiving letters that send a thoughtful & encouraging message. Just to have someone that cares for you and is looking out for you somewhere in the world is… I don’t know how to describe it. I guess I feel so happy and so excited ! And that’s why I want to take action to do this.
Wanting to cry or feeling horribly sad when I see homeless people and those with a mental disability is something I’ve always done. I want to make a small difference in someone’s life even just from letters.
I know that money shouldn’t be an issue, but I really want to be able at that point in life where I have enough money to encourage troops, starving children, and through a good sum of donations and even travel to help out.
(side-track note: I want to be able to do this for the rest of my life side by side with my future man out there.)
