It's been a while, yeah.

So I was working today and I had a pretty good quick convo with this lady who was wearing a "volunteer" shirt and was paying with food stamps.

Lady: Can you remove that item for me please? I don't have enough money to pay for it.

Me: Yup, no problem.

Lady: Thanks... It's hard for me to come up with money for anything extra. I can't find any work after my car accident.

Me: I was in an accident with my mom when I was younger. She had trouble finding a new job for a long time.

Lady: Yeah. I was hit by a drunk driver. Lost pretty much everything. Lost my job. Had to learn how to walk again. Couldn't remember some of my closest friends' names. But God is with me and loves me, and that's all that matters.

That was probably the kick in the face that I have needed for a while now.
