One of these days A little tiny boy (about 9 years) with a big green round eyes, standing infront of my door in one cold winter rainy day, carry a box full with candy canes and another box for us to drop a coin.
I never kept money on my purse (that's prety silly), but my heart keep saying I want to give something to him (but what).
So then I keep talking to him and asking how many people has he gone thru and how much coins dropped into his coin box, while my head running here and there to think for any idea to what to give to him.
His answer touched my deepest heart, I think will touch you too! I have NONE, nobody drop any coin to my box.
I told him that I don't have any money kept in my house and asking him if he has ate something for lunch. He said he has been eaten for breakfast, a clap of bread with honey.
He helps his parents on their organization to sell small little things on every seasonal chance, easter, christmas, and any other celebration, painted eggs, candy canes crochet, candies etc
I offer him a warm chocollate but he wave his head and say no I have to go because he needs to sell something before he can go home. Wait a second, I have something for you then I run into my kitchen and grab some of rocky bubblegum fudge from the fridge where I have made couple days ago, wrap it on a plastick sandwich bag and running back to the door.
He is still standing there and turning his face to me with an open mouth, "Thought you will love this, keep thin on your pocket and you will have a bit energy to walk over another houses and collecting your coins"
He smile to me and wanted to give me his candy canes as a return, told him to go around another house and if tomorrow you pass this street again I will have some coins for you.
He left and wave his hands with a big smile on his cute little face, from the window I saw he walk to another house while grabbing one piece of my fudge. I feel so touched with this sight and wonder that he will come back tomorrow.
Our heart sometimes blocked with so many fake stories how people try to manipulate little children to earn some money for them. But behind this story I will just wanted to ask your thought and see from a different angle, how we still need to act as sincere as a little boy.
The next day I expect this boy to stop by my door again but I have nobody ring my door, but when I see thru out my window I saw something on the floor.
3 candy canes lay on the floor infront of my door, he must be leaving it there yesterday while he left the sreet because, I never use my front door to go out, I use my backyard door as an out and entrance, so I didn't realize it till now.
There are so little of us can be touched with this kind of stories, because of our tight schedule, busy of our daily, sickness, hates, of we just close our heart to protect ourself from so many unkind people who tried to hurt us.
Forget about how other try to hurt us, just be ourself and be good.
"There always good things for us when we give to others our kindness."
"Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it"
and believe this :
"Kindness is like a boomerang, always return!"
For a close I sing this little child song that I always sing together with my mum when I was a little. I never forgot how she sing this beautifully together with Andy Williams, A song and a christmas tree :
On the first day of Christmas my good friends brought to me,
A song and a Christmas tree--(first verse only. All other verses, "a song for the Christmas tree.")
On the second day of Christmas my good friends brought to me,
two candy canes
On the third day of Christmas my good friends brought to me,
three boughs of holly
fourth--four colored lights
fifth--a shining star
sixth---little silver bells
seventh--candles a glowing
eighth--gold and silver tinsel
ninth--a guardian angel
eleventh--gifts for one and all
twelveth--all their good wishes
