Only nickels and dimes...

Only nickels and dimes...

My husband rolled down the window one cold Saturday and yells at the guy with the sign. "Hey come here. I've only got nickels and dimes. Sorry." The fellow replys, "Thanks, anything helps. It's cold today and I'm hungry." I ask him if he goes to Oak Table during the week. Yes he says and smiles. "That's my family." Then he recognizes my husband. "Your the guy that brings food from Harvest! Yeah, this is the blue truck. I've helped you unload." 

Another day, I roll down my window and say to a man, I dont have cash for you but we just dropped off new underwear at Oaktable. The fellow gives me a thumbs up and says "I'm headed there for lunch now. It's going to be a good day."
