We are wrapping up from a eventful weekend. A long really hot but super fun weekend. Ashlynn had a 8th birthday party on Sunday. Only a handful of kids showed up but thats ok. It was a holiday weekend. Want to heat something funny ? I remember exactly where I was a year ago on labor day. I wasnt doing anything fun. Then it would make sense that i remember no, I was getting chick-fil-a listening to Glenn beck for some unknown reason ( I am not a fan ). But he was giving the reason behind labor day. I can't rember the spefics but it was pretty intresting.
Then I saw him.
he was older, unshaven and thin. he was the face of one but the voice of many who wander the streets of phoenix where the temps get well above 110 degrees in the summer . he was asking for money. I wished i had some. But i gripped my five dollars in my hand as tight as i could. I mumbled something about needing all my money for the meter when i walked by.
i felt like a jerk.
but i really did need to get change at least.
I got three dollars in quaters and debated getting more. I had no idea how long my shoot would last. But a littl voice inside me said no. And I smiled and handed the two dollars to the homeless man. I know i am lame. I could have done better by that man. I wispered a prayer for him as I drove off. He is still on my heart ....
i took the older girls out shopping today. We bought a hermit crab and a go go walking dog. I loved watching the girls have so much fun spending their birthday money. They were VERY blessed this year.
I am linking up over here. you should too !
