Feel Good Friday

This post couldn't have come at a better time.  While I was attending undergraduate school at Drexel University, I did a work-study position in one of the freshmen dorms as a desk receptionist.  On one particularly frigid day in January, a resident brought a homeless man with him into the building.  He escorted him up to his room and gave him something to eat, and a chance to get warm.  A short time later, the resident walked the homeless man out.  The man was wearing one of the resident's hoodies.  When the resident returned and gave me his ID to swipe him into the building, he said to me, "I had to hook the man up.  He was freezing".  I had tears in my eyes (and they are tearing up even now), and a huge smile on my face.  The world needs more people like him in it!

When was the last time you did something nice for someone?
