A while back I gave my father a pair of slippers for his birthday. He was always a hard worker and I thought it would be nice for him to have a pair of comfortable shoes to put on when he came home.
I was saddened, though, when we saw that they were too small. I told him I would take them back for a larger size. He told me not to worry about it because I had painted him a picture and that was what he cherished the most. Then, he wondered if my husband could use them; but alas, they were too big for him.
"Who could use these?" I asked myself. Then I got an idea!
I went outside and placed them on the sidewalk. I went back and sat on our enclosed porch to watch who would get them. It was rather entertaining when a man came walking along -- he stopped, looked around to see if anyone was watching, picked up the slippers and walked on! He might have thought he had stolen them, but little did he know they were actually given to him.
I just hope they fit or maybe he knew someone who could wear them. Sharing can sometimes be entertaining too!
