Kota was driving because Kyle had our car and Kayla went to work. Anyhow, we were heading into Burger King and we saw a man holding a sign. Dakota looked at him and said, man that makes me feel bad. I recounted a memory of a visit to Salt Lake City were we saw lots of professional beggars and said, use the Spirit to know what you should do.
We ordered our food. And talked as much as a teenage boy with food in front of him does. And he said again, boy that really makes me feel bad for that man. Mom I have to do something. Again I said, are you sure, sometimes people are just scamming for money.
He said mom, I feel like I am supposed to help him. I have a gift card in my wallet from Christmas that I haven't used yet. Is it okay to give that? I said sure. I watched my son, tramp through the snow to the intersection next to Burger King with a warm heart. He wasn't afraid to give the man what he had.
No matter the tough times in growing into adulthood, if he can take the time to listen to the sweet whisperings of the Holy Ghost and ignore earthly council to do what is right, we as his parents have done our job!
Thanks Moose, for a Saturday filled with a nice memory-making moment; where I learned a life lesson from you.
