|Suddenly the man came from the back of the store and said, "What, no smiles? It is a gorgeous day!" Well, I felt my face turn very hot and I knew that it was beet red because I was angry. What did I have to smile about? I said to the man, "There is no reason for me to smile, my Dad died yesterday afternoon." Well, that is how Mikey found out about Dad's death because of my anger. The man asked me, "Would you walk to the back of the store with me?" I felt no fear whatsoever. I said, "Sure." We walked to the back of the store and he looked at me and said this, "Do you know there are 4 things that people pray for?" I answered him saying, "No I didn't." He then asked me, "Did your Dad have enough money that he could get his medication that he needed and could get a haircut when he needed it?" I replied, "Yes, Sir." He said, "That is ONE." He asked, "Did your Dad have enough money to pay his bills and get groceries and maybe get new pajamas?"|
