Walk A Mile In My Shoes by SassyPants61762 Walk A Mile In My Shoes by SassyPants61762
Outside of my local Wal-Mart, these two sat, and as I approaced, she looked a bit nervous. I of course asked permission to take some photos of them and as we had a short conversation about their travels. I donated some cash and went inside to do my shopping.....I came out of the store with a bag of food for them, and they were gone....I knew they couldn't have gone that far, so I went slowly up the road looking for them. I found them crossing a parking lot and flaged them down.....gave them their food and off I went...Thoughts of them still linger in my mind right now....

Well it does my heart good to know people care.

One time not long ago I was leaving my parent's house after a Sunday dinner. Both my sisters and their families where there, talking about their upcoming vacations, their new cars, etc. At the time I had no phone or internet at home. As I left someone asked me if I was coming back out their way that week. I swallowed my pride and said, "Well, this is my situation. I have enough gas to get me home. I have enough food for about two days, which is a quart of beans. So if any of you want to visit me this week it will have to be at my house." A few of them said, "OK! See ya!" :|

It was more than two weeks before I heard from any of them. So I know how it feels to think no one cares.

:no:Yup and they call themselves family...:cry: Are you sure they aren't my sisters...cuz they sure sound like them! If you were my brother...you would have been begging me to stop with the food already! I have two people in my life that are having hard times, and they both are always telling me...thats enough, thats enough...I would give you the shirt off my back, if you don't stab me in the back when I do...fool me once shame on me...fool me twice all bets are off!

Yeah, so imagine how I felt alone for two weeks. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
