I went home, put an apron on and made some brownies, which we dropped off later that day. The next day Sister Connelly called me with a "Thank you! and How did you know that I needed a little cheering up? I was having the worst day..."
Since I've known him, he's been this way.
He notices the woman at the grocery who is trying to grab the box of cereal that is just out of her reach, and he gets it for her.
He notices the guy who has his hands full, and he grabs the door for him.
He drags a lawn mower down the street to mow a neighbor's lawn because he heard them mention theirs broke.
He stops what he's doing to help someone carry a box, or unload a moving truck -whether we know that person or not.
He is always aware of the needs of the people around him, and he always does what he can to help out.
And I think that's awesome.
