maiya did one of the most amazing, wonderful and self-less things today after we shopped at the dimond mall center (anchorage)...
we were at a stop light and in front of us was another vehicle. on the sidewalk was an old homeless man with a cane. it was freezing cold and icy out. he approached the car in front of us and they gave him some money.
maiya said, " i want to give him some $." she rolled down the window and said to the man, "here sir." he walked slowly with a limp towards us and she handed him the money. although there was a jerk behind who honked at us as the man said thank you, i was so touched. and by the way, maiya yelled at the car behind us, "hey! i'm giving him some money!!!!" the homeless man smiled at maiya.
i told her i was proud of her and that she did a real good thing. i asked her, "you know you gave him a $10 bill, right?" she said, "actually i gave him $14."
she was so proud of herself with a bit of a tear in the corner of her eye. i raised a great, good child. and i'm grateful and learned from her today.
love her so much.
