I‘ve met up with my homeless buddy Ryan nearly every day this week. He’s getting easier to talk too (I’m not feeling quite so uncomfortable) and today I managed to find him a new pair of shoes, courtesy of another kind friend. I am struck with how normal Ryan is… he reflects a new and uncomfortable reality… a lot of people are now on the street through no fault of their own.
I am away from family this Christmas so I have decided to buy a gift for my new friend. Ryan loves the NFL but he won’t tell me exactly which team is his favorite. But I know he has lived in both Indiana and Miami for some considerable time… so I have bought him an NFL cap from both of those regions.
The spirit of Christmas is a “gift for the undeserving”. Find someone who doesn’t deserve your gift this Christmas.
