Bedtime Snacks for Homeless Soles
Last night we brought the homeless of course socks but also a bedtime snack. Never again will you hear me say "I'm starving" or "there's no food in this house"....When you see people who are truly starving you learn to appreciate what you do have, even if it's not always what you want, it's what you need. Even when faced with a choice last night (mustard or mayo on their sandwich) not one person cared. The standard answer was "i'll take whatever you have, I'm just happy to have some food". They ALWAYS smile so big when I give them socks, like they won the lottery. We laugh in my house all the time because I am "the sock lady" and I never have matching socks on my own feet but I will make sure the homeless do. Always carry an extra pair of socks in your bag in case you see someone in need. Such a small thing, goes a very long way.
