Good & Evil in the Same Moment

Today I experienced good & evil in the very same moment & it was incredibly emotional.

I need to back up a little bit in order for this story to make sense. 

Not long ago a woman with a beautiful soul contacted me about helping once a month with feeding the homeless.  Her name is Sobia & she & her family are from the beautiful white Islamic Mosque on West Speedway, near Stone & Main Street.   :)    

Sobia told me that she also would like to help out with the 80 gift bags for the homeless for Christ-mas I am putting together again this year.  She let me know that the people from the mosque will provide all the deodorants, shampoo, conditioners, shaving creams, razors & bars of soap I would need, which multiplied by 80 is huge.  :o

Today as I was driving up to the Mosque to pick up these items the news came on about the terrible  shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, & I sat there just crying.  At the same moment Sobia's family was loading all these incredible donations into my car for the homeless & those big boxes just kept coming & coming.  We were worried about fitting it all into my SUV, it was so much.   :)

At that very moment I experienced evil & good at the exact same time for the first time in my life.  Normally it is one or the other, but never both at the same moment.  I felt how the good covered over the evil & triumphed over it.  It is quite difficult to describe the emotions that I was feeling at that very moment.  It was like one of my eyes was crying in sadness & my other eye was crying tears of joy, all at the same time. 

Sobia & all your loving family & friends, I am ever soooo grateful to you for your enormous Generosity & Caring & for giving me this experience today, which will live on forever in my Heart.   :)   

You all are the embodyment of Goodness & Love !!  :)
