Miracles can happen though, right?
Hubby and I went to the movies and saw The Martian. I didn't think this would be my type of movie but actually it was fun and who could not enjoy looking at the cute and talented Matt Damon.
We had dinner in the city, Kansas City, on the Country Club Plaza. We love to go there especially at Christmas time when all the Plaza Christmas lights on on. We enjoyed a nice little dinner then left to window shop on our way back to the car. Out side the restaurant, across the sidewalk sat a homeless man all bundled up from the cold, it was in the 20s. He was quiet and did not speak to any passerby, just held a box with a stuffed monkey inside and a sign that said please feed the monkey. Usually I have to admit I am somewhat skeptical and we glanced at him and strolled by as most people do. However we did not get far and I tugged at hubbys arm and said I have to go feed the monkey, turned around and made my donation to his box.
This man reminded me that sugar plums do not dance through everyones head this time of year. Some people are lonely with out family, some face illness, financial burden, the loss of a loved one, or are homeless on a cold night. I hope the monkey gets fed and a warm meal this Christmas.
Be Merry, and Be kind, I hope Christmas brings you great joy,
