I walked over to the shopping mall that is a stone's throw from the hospital DD is at. Outside the door, a homeless couple was huddled together. The owner of the store was being a dick and refusing to let them inside. I noticed that neither one of them had gloves or a hat, and it is bitter cold outside. 

I had walked over there to pick up a set of hat and gloves for myself, so I went ahead and bought two more pairs for the couple. They looked at me with expressions of utter disbelief and mumbled a quick "thank you". I wished them a Merry Christmas, and went on my way. 

Hopefully I made their holiday season a little brighter.

I still have a big bag of clothes I have to drop off at the rescue mission. Along with a few stuffed animals. It's a tradition of mine to donated clothes and toys every year.

Thank you for being generous to the forgotten members of our society! Merry Christmas to you :o)
