They were at Safeway.. I didn't see them.. I walked as if it was Christmas...not a care in the world.. I had so much money (I felt) that I didn't even need to check how much... I just decided to walk in and buy what I want without a worry. She approached me as I was about to enter.. and asked... I said I'll will when I come out and meant it. I shopped while thinking.. "what I can buy for her and her 5yr child?" "How are they doing in this over 100 degree heat?!??" "How sad is that when I casually walk into Safeway not even thinking howmuch I had?!? While this poor woman and child was begging in what is REALLY over 100 degrees?!??" Thought to provide them with cold water and few crisp cool apples. Then finally walking out, I found them again. I walked over to her without a word... gave her few apples and the cold bottled water. Then reached into my pocket while looking into this poor woman's eyes who seem to be showing the truth of her condition .. spoke in broken middle European accent. Her husband probably kicked her out to seek work/help.. but I believe her. I reached into my pocket and pulled out a wad of cash.. mostly 1's 5's 10's.. and without counting.. gave her half of whatever I had then.. I walked to my car.. and left. I did drive around the parking lot to see her and her child once more... As I was driving away... I was listening to some intense soring music... I cried.. cried hard... probably had things bottled up and has been a difficult week.. but nevertheless.. went into somewhat uncontrollable crying... I want to do more....
