    The Shoe Store...please read!!!

    An eye witness account from New York
    City , on a cold day in December,
    Some years ago: A little boy,
    About 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the
    Roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering
    With cold.

    A lady approached the young boy and said,
    'My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!'

    'I was asking God to give me a pair of
    Shoes,' was the boy's reply.

    The lady took him by the hand, went into
    The store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks
    For the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water
    And a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

    She took the little fellow to the back
    Part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed
    His little feet, and dried them with the towel.

    By this time, the clerk had returned with
    The socks.. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him
    A pair of shoes..

    She tied up the remaining pairs of socks
    And gave them to him.. She patted him on the head and said, 'No
    Doubt, you will be more comfortable now..'

    As she turned to go, the astonished kid
    Caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears
    In his eyes, asked her:

    'Are you God's wife?'
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone all over the world had such kindness in their hearts? There would be no wars and we could all be truly one family.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
