Bless you

June 21, 2004

Today whilst walking downtown, a homeless man sitting on the side of a building sneezed.

“Bless you,” I said to him as I walked by.

“M’am?” he called out to me and I turned around. “I ain’t been blessed in a mighty long time. Lord knows I needed that. I feel a little hope comin’ on.”

I smiled at him and he smiled a wide grin back.
