    Indeed we are all beggars, each one of us in some way at some time in our lives has done something out of fear or our needs not being met or wanting to belong. When we pause and ask ourselves, "what might have happened to this person to create the action taken?" We can sit in compassion rather than judgment. ♡ Since 2008 I've shared Hugs, conversations and bought lunches with homeless. Every person I met had/has a story of loss. Every person when hugged said statements like, "thank you for seeing me. " "I haven't been touched in twenty years." Imagine what that would be like.
    Before we judge or see someone as "bad" again, let us pause and ask, "what might have happened to provike this particular action?"
    Hugs from my heart to yours,
    Kristin
