This is one of those stories that will just make you smile.
Jhazmhon Williams Lee was headed to a Walmart.
She saw the woman in this picture holding a sign and asking for food and clothes for her family.
She gave her $10 and left.
But she wanted to do more.
Here’s what Jhazmhon posted about what happened next:
As I parked, I felt a warm feeling and something told me I could do more for that lady.
So I went back and I asked her questions like where she was from, why was she here, and where are her children.
She began to look scared and started giving me false information.
She thought I was going to call child services.
She said that from the color of her skin, people don’t want to help her.
I told her regardless of the color of your skin I love you anyway and all I want to do is help you.
She took me to her kids and where she lived and I’m not going to go in detail but I was so sad.
I told her I don’t have a lot of money but the money that I do have I would like to help her with it.
So I took her and her daughter to Walmart and told her to get everything she needed!
She was in tears and so excited.
My bday is tomorrow and I planned on going out of town this weekend, but instead of doing that I know I received more enjoyment helping this sweet lady and her family with the money I saved instead.
I encourage everyone to lend a helping hand.
It doesn’t have to be financially.
It could just be you walking up to others and encouraging them that there are better days (ahead).
You will be amazed how much that means to people.
I was very excited and my heart was filled with joy and with her permission I posted this.
Never be ashamed to ask for help.

It’s always amazing to me what happens when you listen to your heart.
Jhazmhon easily could have said:
“Hey I gave her $10.
I did my part.”
But instead she listened to her heart and look at the result.
Thanks to Gina Gina for telling me about this story.
