Upset that parents didn’t keep kid warmer

OK, it’s one of those times I feel the need to vent.

Monday afternoon (Dec. 11 — a very cold, blustery day) I was standing in the checkout line at our Dollar Tree store.

As I glanced outdoors, I noticed a young couple approaching the entrance. The “mom” was carrying a little guy, appearing to less than one year old. I notice the child was without a cap. Ohh. Bad enough, but when they walked inside, I saw that poor little guy had bare feet. What the heck? I was flabbergasted. I wish I had gone back, purchased a pair of socks and given it to them. But I thought of that too late (after being angry and shedding some tears). What I did do was go to church and pray; “Dear Lord, if you have some extra common sense laying around, please give it to these “parents.” Please keep that little boy safe and healthy and free from further abuse.
