Tears To My Eyes


Last updated 10/8/2018 at 3:44pm

I was witness to a recent happening that brought tears to my eyes. I was sitting in the waiting room at Perfect Balance, the exercise facility in town. I was knitting in bright colors when a gentleman approached me. He was wearing a hat that made me think he was a veteran. The man asked me what I was knitting.

I replied, “Scarves for the homeless (the Haven).” The man disappeared for a moment and came back with a twenty-dollar bill.

“This is for your yarn.”

“Sir,” I said, “What’s your name?” He left, his identity unknown. I ended up in tears.
