Plan "B"


Ten years ago around Christmas I was headed down to the local grocery store to pick up a few items. As I pulled into the parking lot I noticed a homeless looking man sitting out on the lawn between the main road and the parking lot.

I really did not pay much attention to the fellow. As I parked my truck I noticed that there was a very nice looking older woman getting out of a very nice car right next to me.

As I proceeded to do my shopping I noticed the woman who had parked next to me walking the aisles picking out items and placing them into a basket.

As I finished my shopping and paid for my items I followed the same woman out of the store. The woman had several bags of groceries in her arms. She proceeded to get into her vehicle and began to pull to the end of the parking lot. I was behind her as she rolled her window down and handed the man who was on the lawn all of the bags of groceries that she had just purchased.

The woman had no idea anyone was watching her. This woman had no idea what an impression she made on my life. Not a Christmas goes by that I do not remember that fine woman and what she did for that man on the lawn.
