Or is dh too cynical? Tonight I was getting dinner at Subway and this lady who appeared to be homeless came in and ordered a sandwich. When I went to pay, I asked her if I could pay for her meal as well and she was quick to say I didn't need to do that but I felt like I needed to for some reason. I felt that way from the moment she walked in. So I went ahead and paid for everything and she was very thankful.
When I came home, I told dh what I did and he gave me this look. I don't even know how to explain *the look*. I knew by his expression that it wasn't something he would have done even though he's a very generous person usually. He made the comment that a lot of *homeless* people (bc some do fake it) make more money than we do just by panhandling. If she was ordering a sandwich, obviously she had money. Well maybe she did tonight but who's to say she would have money tomorrow to eat?
I know I did the right thing whether she was homeless or not. It's all about doing unto others, right? Maybe she will pay it forward now.
