Some need help..... Vote for this post

I had to pick up some things at the store last night and as I was on my at home  I saw  a man and two kids close to the road. The man had a sign that said  "traveling  need money for food"  As I saw some drivers pulling over and handing him  money I thought well he's getting money and how do I know he is really being honest.
So being in the lane away from him I drove on, but something or someone had other ideas, all at once I found I had tears falling so hard it was hard to see and the car seem to have gotten a mind of it's own as it made a left turn at the next street.
It took two turns to be on the same street where I had seen the man with the two kids,
 I  reached in my purse and took some money out and  made sure I got in the right lane,  I was in luck, I got a red light,
I pushed the button to roll the window down as the man walked over, I handed him the money and got a bless you.
Just as I was pulling away I saw a small dog in the arms of one of the little boys.
Was this man being honest? .....maybe, maybe not, .....Did my Rainbow Bridge Girls send me back to remind me of the Christmas Sprit? ......or to remind me that some do have less then we do, , .....What do you think?

I think you did the right thing.  If it was a scam, the man was at fault, you were not.
You followed your heart and did the charitable thing.  
I live in a upper middle class community but we still collect food for needy families and much of the food stays in this community.

Oh Eve, the whole story tugs on your heartstrings...There's no right or wrong here. If he needed the money, bless all of you who gave it. If it was a scam, he'll pay for it sooner or later. This time of year especially we think with our hearts and hope for the goodness of mankind. You did good, and I'm sure your girls would approve.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Eve you know in your heart that you did the right thing.

If he was running a scam it is on him and shame for using his children and the dog as heart grabbers.

God will know your kindness and I know the truth about this man.

Love Riley and Allen

Eve,sometimes something  within makes us stop and do things,I have dome similar in the past and  if it was a scam then nothing can be done but you just have to hope the man was genuine, and needed the money bad for food for his family and pupper...and you did not know the wee pupper was there untill you went back...maybe Dear Phoenix and the sisters played a part!!...Big Hugs and kisses to you Ed and Tillie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You did right Eve and G-D knows your intention. I have done it too many times and our older daughter too. She buys them dinners. For a while we had drunks in the wooded area and every day people are standing there for a hand out. The cops come by often because some was sleeping in the woods and I saw them on the beach too when I was walking for the turtle patrol.we have many places at the beaches were they can get help and a bed to sleep in with food. Some just will not go in and prefer to be on the out site. I will not give money if they spend it on drugs or alcohol but will be glad to buy them something to eat. Love,Yoka,Levi and Winter
