It was an ordinary working day for Morissa pena. She is a professional make-up artist as well as Hooters waitress in Phoenix, Arizona. While there are heartwarming pictures of the couple which always make me cry, this story of compassion will surely touch your hearts.
Morissa stopped her car in the parking lot and saw a homeless man sitting on the curb. She walked up to the stranger to help him out. What happened next will surely melt your heart.
Morissa wrote on Facebook, "Today when I pulled into work, I happened to glance into my rear view mirror and notice this man sitting on a curb across the street. His name is Rick. I walk up to him and ask if he's okay…he barely mumbled a 'no' and looked down and started sobbing. I asked if he was hungry…he said 'very.' I helped him off the ground and linked his arm with mine."
She continued, "I introduced myself to Rick and explained that I work here at Hooters, and we would be happy to have him. I sat him down and told him he could order whatever he wanted, on me."
She further added, "Another table bought him a dessert. He was so grateful…he told me he was here from Ohio and had been hit by a car, and he couldn't go to the hospital because he didn't have even an ID. He showed me his necklace, it has Phillipians 4:13 engraved on it. He was telling me how it was the only thing he had. We cried together."
Morissa wrote, "He finished up his meal and told me he would never forget my name, my face, and how I had given him hope again. I asked if it was okay if we took a picture together, he was delighted. He even pulled out a small comb and combed his beard for our picture…so cute! As he goes to leave, he takes off his necklace and hands it to me, and told me he wanted me to have it. I was speechless. I still am."
Morissa exclaimed, "This man gave me the only thing that had any value to him. That is a debt I will never be able to repay."
She wrote, "I will never forget Rick and the few moments we spent together. Please, remember to be kind. Remember to help where you can and to do it selflessly."
She insisted, "If you can, share this as a reminder, and also so more people can send positive thoughts towards Rick and the other homeless people who need it. Have a wonderful rest of your day." Share the motivating story of this generous lady as much as you can.
