“An Open Heart...”

   

Description from Sonja J: Is Easily Tricked...

Last night, my fiancé and I tried to help a homeless girl. We live in a bad area, and it was dark, so we felt bad for her to be wandering outside. We let her into our home to charge her phone while she waited for a ride, gave her food and water and were very nice to her, even offering her a ride if her ride didn't show. Finally, several hours later, her ride got here. Everything seemed fine until this morning, when we realized she had stolen both of my fiancé's electric razors from our bathroom, the one place we hadn't been able to keep a close eye on her. (Obviously)

I just feel so disappointed. Now, we have to explain the whole situation to his parents, so that he can get a new razor, because we can't afford one ourselves. We had even told the girl how poor we are, and how we're a month behind on our rent.


Anyways, I needed to express myself and decided to make a heart filled pick with lots of darkish colors. Enjoy the pick!

    You did a good thing and she rewarded you by stealing. how sad. but maybe, just maybe, she was so desperate that she had to take something to survive. If so, you did a REALLY good thing by aiding her survival. I am sorry you had this experience but there might be a side of it you haven’t considered. Take care! beautiful, luscious, velvety green pick!

    Thanks everyone. I know she was desperate, but my fiance understood her side perfectly…he was homeless for almost a year several years ago…all she had to do was ask and we would have given her whatever we could spare. I really appreciate the kind words, though, it makes me feel better.

    Hi Sonja honey, I feel for you that you opened your home and your heart to this girl and what she did. I suppose that’s all she knows in order to get by. Not to defend her, but we have no idea what kind of life she has had that led her to this kind of life.

    Well you now we all here have nothing but good things to give you from our hearts in prayer or good words or warm fuzzies.

    This is a lovely pick indeed. I love it.
