I Like microwave.

"Desperately in need..."

Across my feed yesterday came this plea “Desperately in need of a microwave ASAP.” I looked through the person’s public profile and saw a man who was sober 18 months. A dad who pretended to be Superman in Walmart one day, at his daughter’s request. Someone who had been posting things about trust, and hope, and faith – and I realized that we had an extra microwave sitting in our basement, that our college son did not need. “I have one for you,” I responded. He picked it up at 3 yesterday, without even meeting. I put it on my porch so he could snag it with his dignity intact. I’m hoping his kids and him have a warm breakfast, lunch and dinner with the microwave which had been just occupying space in our basement. Simple. Done. There are opportunities all around if we keep our eyes open.
