My daughter is a very sensitive young lady. Today, as we were driving to the store, she saw a man on a street corner holding a sign. It said, "Will work for food."
"Awww," she said. "Look at that homeless man. He looks so sad. Can we help him?"
"I don't have any cash," I told her. (This was true. I'm one of those moms who runs around with a few pennies in my purse. I definitely have to do something about that!)
"Can we buy him some food?"
I thought about that. We were going to Target. I could buy him something there.
"All right," I said. "We'll get him a Lunchable."
Then it started raining.
"We better get him an umbrella too."
So that's what we did. We bought a Lunchable and one very large umbrella for the man.
What a thoughtful daughter I have!
