Glove love.

I went shopping all over the city. I need all sorts of winter clothes, and figured that it'd be a good idea to hit up some second hand stores. I wandered about, and found some fantastic bargains. Just by chance, I happened upon a store where they had these gloves at $1 per pair. For whatever reason, there were three pairs left. I bought all three. I couldn't figure out why, because I can only wear only pair at a time, and it's not like I'm suffering from an overabundance of space. Maybe the answer would come later on.

I had a lovely lunch at a cute little bistro, and kept walking. There were two men sitting on the sidewalk, with a sign in front of them. "Homeless, cold, and hungry. Need winter clothes. Anything will help." So that's what the extra pairs of gloves were for! I handed (hah!) them over, and walked off far less confused than where I started.


  1. I just got goosebumps reading that.

  2. Theresa: How come goosebumps? It was just me reaching out to someone, and helping in a small way. Maybe one of these days, I'll be able to carry some boxes with hot food in it, and pass it out to people I see who are homeless ...

    Vegcat: I just love the fact that there are people out there who can ask for a helping hand when they need one. That takes courage.

  3. Great story as for me. I'd like to read a bit more about this matter. Thnx for posting this info.
