So hubby and I were out the other day, scouring the thrift shops for cassette tapes for our eBay business.
At the entrance of The Salvation Army I noticed a pile of neatly folded belongings, which I assumed was a donation that hadn't been taken into the store yet. I was still browsing while Hubby was in line to pay, and I overheard the cashier telling a customer that he was going to have to choose between two shirts, he didn't have enough voucher money for both. Then I heard hubby offer to pay for the second shirt--it was only 50 cents!
The man, who was probably homeless, thanked hubby with quiet dignity, and left the store. Outside, he met a friend, gave him one of the two shirts, and picked up his tidy pile of stuff, which may have been all he had, and they walked off.
Giving is indeed the greatest gift.
