Giving

Something happened that brightened my day this morning. As I ran down to the train, an older Latina woman approached me and asked if I could swipe her through in broken English. My card is an unlimited so I can only swipe it once every fifteen minutes. I replied to her in Spanish to put her at ease and asked her to come to the machine with me. She had wanted to add two dollars but the machine wasn’t accepting bills. I just went ahead and bought her ten dollars worth. A little thing really but it made my day. Be well.
