Gratitude Day #2

Today I'm so thankful for heat. Heat in my vehicle, warm clothing, heat in our home...

At 9:00 this morning, I was in the car (stopped at a red light) at a large intersection near our home. There was only one other car in front of me, and no other traffic around. Seemingly out of nowhere, a transient man approached the car in front of me and started soliciting him. The man seemed aggressive enough to make me uncomfortable. I felt frightened. I also felt sad for the man who had nowhere better to be than on the street corner in 11 degree weather, inadequately dressed.

Random, I know-- but I'm thankful for heat.
