carolinedelay Don't normally share much, but wanted to post My not-so-typical Friday night.. Feeling a lil lonely in the city. I came to Starbucks. Literally 4 people in here. Everyday a million thoughts run through my mind a minute. Contemplating my purpose in life.. My purpose for the day. I got my laptop out to do some random somethin. And I asked God to bring me someone to talk to. No more then five minutes later Harold and Donna pop a squat rightt next to me. (There are a lot of other empty seats.. a lot) I could see they sell newspapers. Here that means you are homeless..but what I didn't know..these people are businessmen they are hustlin.. Makin a honest effort to get back on their feet. We talked for about an hour, laughed, and drank coffee. Then we prayed and thanked God for His Grace, unconditional love, and for caring about allll the small things. Donna and Harold went on their way to who knows where.. And left me here with a smile on my face and a paper to read. I hate reading. I've bought this paper before. But never actually read it. So I did...Well one article. And it was about 71 yr old Curtis. Raised on a plantation in none other than Little Rock, Arkansas. Once a professional chef at the University of Arkansas. (hey I went to school there!) When his grandmother (and several other close people in his life) passed he got addicted to drugs. He lost everything and asked God to take him away from drugs and it brought him to Nashville. He began selling "The Contributor".. Working 16 hour days bc he loved it and loved all the people he met and encouraged. Now sober and sick with stage 4 Cancer, Curtis said he is the happiest he's ever been. I was hoping God could use me tonight (and He did) but really God used Donna, Harold, and now Curtis to encourage me! #ohwhatanight #nashville #nashvilletn #thecontributor 21h
