A Cold And Windy Day

--by alisamom, posted Apr 1, 2017
Today my daughter and I met friends at a parking lot to sell them some of our eggs. It's a cold day. A really cold wind. I don't even want to go outside.

As we pulled into the parking lot, there was a man sitting on the curb, holding his bike, and he held up a paper plate on which he had scribbled "will work for food".

He was still sitting there as we left the parking lot, and I asked my daughter "should we get him some food or some money?" and she said "yes, lets".

So I pulled up next to him, got out of the car, and gave him all my egg money. I still had another dozen eggs in the car, and asked if he wanted them, but he said no, he still had half a dozen and he didn't want things to go to waste.

I felt frozen through and through just standing there talking with him for a minute, and he must be sitting there for hours.
I'm glad we stopped, I'm glad I got out of the car and talked with him for a minute.

I hope he has a warm place to sleep tonight.
