I have written before about my husband and myself volunteering at the Gilroy Compassion Center. It continues to be a place I love to serve. I always walk away from my time there feeling uplifted. Sometimes the giving is in reverse, the client ministers to me without even knowing it.
Recently, while volunteering at the GCC, I heard beautiful music coming from the warehouse. I made my way to the back of the facilities and I discovered a client playing this old and dusty piano. The piano isn’t in a place of prominence. It is as if it was set aside waiting to see if anyone notices it anymore. The client was singing about a lost love from the 70’s. Turns out he is a self-taught piano player. What a gift he has. I wish I had video taped the music so you could hear the stunning sounding reverberating in the warehouse.
I was just struck with the thought of how we can judge people by the way they look or the circumstances they find themselves in and decide they might not have anything to give. It is a reminder to me to not look past someone. I just feel so blessed to have heard his music that morning.
