Generosity

Bobbie usually buys one of her favorite Korean snacks from the trampoline lady in her neighborhood. The lady is very kind, but she’s poor, single, and has little children to support. Bobbie mentions this to her mom at home. Bobbie’s mom makes kimchee (Korean pickled, spicy cabbage) and puts aside an extra container. She then packs up some other food, to include hotdogs, and tells Bobbie that they’re going on a trip. They head to the lady who runs the neighborhood trampoline. Bobbie’s mother starts a conversation with the lady and then hands over the bags of goodies to her. The lady smiles a tearful, yet joyful, smile that Bobbie has never witnessed before. It was a priceless moment.
