As the day begin to wind down,  while traveling down Superior Road Margrette and I saw what appeared to be a 78-80 year old lady, clad in a overside winter coat and mens gloves (way to big for her 4 foot frame…

On a torn up parking lot, ravishing through a garbage dumpster on one side of her and a clothing drop off bin on the other.

Stuff was thrown everywhere.

It was hard to tell she was there. She was so heavily concentrated on so many things to choose from.

Our hearts immediately went out to her. We still had a box of food left and thought we’d give it to her.

I pulled the car over carefully so she wouldn’t be startled while others drove by and onlookers watched, but no one sought to help her…

As I  approached her with a food bag in my hand, clearly she was startled, and she asked “who are you”…I gave her my name (Ruth) and told her I was from Providence Baptist Church hoping to gain her trust…and it did,

Then asked if she was ok..and she politely responded, “Baby I’m fine”

But how could she be fine in the cold elements, making food and clothing choices from the trash…

I told her we were out delivering food and warm socks and wanted to share some with her…she said sure that would be fine…

When asked I could we do anything else she said “no thats quite enough”….

Reaching out to give her a mask, Margrette said to her, “here wear this”…curiously looking it over she replied “what for”?
