On December 24 I drove to Walmart at 12:05 am. In the midst of a heavy snow-storm on unplowed roads. I made that late night trek because I had realized I was short a couple presents for my boys — and since we celebrate Christmas with our kids on Christmas Eve morning that was the only solution that Todd and I could think of. It was interesting — as I was reminded to stop looking at my own life and take a moment to see someone elses.
Who was that man? Why was he driving through the snow? I wondered.
Who was she? Why was she working in the middle of the night at Walmart?
And remember those I met on my snowy trip to Walmart on Christmas Eve.
