> A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly

>little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and

> When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the
>little boy just said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry.'

> A little girl said, 'I know all about adoption, I was adopted..'

> 'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked another child.

> On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him
>after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and

>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

>
> 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

> 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.

Great ones as always Dusty. Thanks for the laugh. I'm sure it would've knocked my socks off had I been wearing them.
