I know have talked about this homeless man that hangs around a few stores that I go to. Yesterday I ran into him again. I got behind him in line and the cashier asked him if he had any money to buy his cookies and milk and he said no but I am hungry. I told the cashier that I would buy his cookies and milk.
I have done this for this guy several time's, but yesterday, he turned and looked at me and said thank you. That was the first time the homeless guy ever spoke to me.
Later that evening I told Amber that I had run into this guy again. Amber said "I wonder if he has any family? Do they know he is homeless?" I don't know the answers to these questions.
What I do know is that it is getting cold here and this man does not even have a winter coat. We do not have a homeless shelter here, so I have no idea where he is sleeping, or what he is doing to stay worm.
Then I remembered an entry that I wrote some time last year. It was called women unite. http://thoughtofasonerwhitewomen.blogspot.com/2007/03/women-unite.html
So I am going to raise challenge that I gave to everyone else. I am have a nice warm sweatshirt that I am going to give him, Rusty has some really nice cold weather sock's, so I know he wont miss one pair, and I going to do my best to get a tie blanket done for this man.
I still have a few last minute things I need to get done today. Today is Rusty's birthday and he is already gone. He had to take that marine to the airport. This afternoon I have to go get my mom and then the real fun will begin.
