The Most Amazing Chicken Noodle Soup Story I’ve Ever Heard

Some stories make you laugh and others make you weep like Alice in Wonderland. And then some just make you sit back and realize that the world is truly extraordinary. In the midst of ugliness, there is still beauty.

And sometimes, if you sit on Twitter long enough, someone blesses you by just telling their story. Yesterday, @FrancisinMD decided to tell us about the strange week he’s had. And SteenFox put his tweets into a Storify. After reading it, all I could say was “WOW” repeatedly.

You NEED to read this. It’s more than worth your time. This is a promise.

WOW. Again, WOW. Amazing. Simply. AMAZING.

What came to mind for me after reading this was one of my favorite quotes from my favorite poem Desiderata. “With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”

Desiderata Quote

Thanks for sharing this story, Francis. It really brought one of those heart smiles to my face. God is good, and life is so weird and you’re so blessed.

P.S. Francis, can you share this recipe or nah? I think the world needs more of this soup!

    I’m weeping because
    1) incredible story
    2) if you invite me over for a potluck, I’m bringing one of my specialties: ice, drinks, paper cups, napkins, paper plates or plastic cutlery. That homemade soup saves lives *weeps*

    Wow! I was speechless after reading it the first time, overwhelmed the second time, and just plain old “full” the third time. What a wonderful, well-written story. And btw, I so felt him and his exit 19 rule….there is hope for us all.

    That is an amazing story and must have been AMAZING soup. Reflecting on it though, what is amazing me more is the possibility of LONG TERM change that could (hopefully will) come from the simple act of talking to someone who was obviously troubled. We live in a time where people are “invisible” with no connections being made anymore. This guy needed money but more importantly he needed a human connection. The soup was a vehicle for providing that connection. It is a hard world, cruel world for many people….maybe your own personal “soup kitchen” provided an opportunity for this guy. Thank you for sharing.

    I haven’t been this moved by a story in a long time. If this right here isn’t proof that God is good, I don’t know what is.
