Have you ever shared Oreo cookies with a homeless man? I have! And believe it or not the experience was wonderful! The only thing missing from that moment was milk for our cookies lol.
Lee was his name, and for some odd reason I felt connected to him. I didn’t recognize his face and I wasn’t sure if I knew him personally, but the energy he gave off resembled my own. Lee sat under a tree with the rest of his belongings, and as I sat down beside him he reached into one of his bags, pulled out a pack of Oreo’s, and then handed me the pack. We just sat there for about 30 minutes eating and sharing stories about our life. He shared with me his experience in prison while I expressed my concern for my family. To be honest, my talk with Lee had to be one of the greatest conversations in my life. We both gave each other our undivided attention, as well as perfect body language and eye contact. Conversations like that are rare to come upon, especially in today’s society.
Overall, I just want to thank Lee for sharing his time with me. He gave me some knowledge about my life that was necessary. It’s amazing what you can learn when you take the time to talk to others. Always remember to keep an open mind and show compassion for others. You might receive a blessing because of it!
