Thanks for popping in.
Take your boots off in the porsche before you come into the kitchen.
Toasty in here, but brrrr…..! Very cold isn’t it ?!
We came in to the office early this morning, and were driving through Edenbridge…
There was a young Mum stood at the crossing with her little kids.
The nippers had hats and gloves and winter coats and boots on. She had a jumper and little shoes.
“Blimey!” said Dave, “That woman hasn’t got a coat on!”
“Perhaps she hasn’t got a coat. perhaps she can’t afford one,” was my reply.
I remember years ago, a dear friend of mine was visiting from the north. Same time of year, and it was freezing. When she got off the train, she only had a cardigan on.
“Where’s your coat?!” I exclaimed.
“Haven’t got one” she responded.
“What do you mean, you haven’t got one!?” I asked stupidly.
“The kids both have,” she replied, “didn’t stretch to three.”
Sometimes you just have to have it spelt out for you, don’t you.
Of course, I drove her straight to Tunbridge Wells and kitted her out with a coat and hat and scarf and boots.
But it hit me right between the eyes.
Me, with my 20 coats in all styles and colours.
So when the young mum was standing in the freezing cold this morning, helping her kids across the road, I immediately remembered my friend.
Life’s little lesson for today: never assume anything.
Love & Hugs,
