Ann's story | tallred's Blog
I need to share a story right here and right now. I was walking down the street with two friends. A woman was walking toward us. She asked us could she have money to make a phone call. We passed her then I came back and gave her my phone to make as many calls as she wanted to. Her hand was shaking when she took the phone. After a few atempts it became clear, whoever she was trying to reach wasn't picking up. I offered her to text the person. She agreed and handed me the phone so I could text for her, she was shaking too much. The text said "it's Ann please pick up" we tried calling a few more times then I noticed the slight quiver of her chin. I immediately sensed this was more than it looked do I asked if she was ok. And that was it. She let out a sob and kept saying she just wanted to go home. My heart went out to her but we had to leave. Just before we went I gave her a sweet. Ann was on my mind for a few days but soon forgot.
Until.. Yesterday. I walked out of a shop and there in a doorway was Ann. A coffee cup with a few coins sitting infront of her. My insides contracted. It was over a month since the day I first met her. It was absolutely freezing over the last few weeks! Again I had sweets with me and so I gave her some...
Is this all I can do for a homeless person who Must have had a family now has nothing and all I can give her is a handful of sweets!
