Love is Everything

The winter cold hung in the air like a frozen dinosaur trying to thaw from lus glacier and walk across the earth. Breath iced like a tiny moming mist upon a meandering river. The sounds of the city rising and spilling into silence as the night began to claim its citizens for sleep.


Blowing on gloved hands seemed to have little effect on cold hands that ached with chill. She had spent long hours hanging pressed clothes, pulling tickets and ringing up the customers. The last of the packaged hot chocolate was gone, leaving only the longing need for home and a hot pie to warm her.

It was payday and she cashed her check. Two Santas and one Salvation Army captain later, she was minus ten dollars, but what did it matter? She had a place to sleep, something decent to eat, and she had Drew. Drew, with his kindness, his caring and his humor to lighten her day.


Thanksgiving was nigh and they were collecting early for the hungry and the children that would have no Christmas without them.She was so much more lucky than most.of them but perhaps not as lucky as those that scurried in the Wednesday night sleet, shoppintg early before the piclangs became slim. Life was not always easy but sometimes it could be safe.


She had Drew, and Smat, the ugly little terrier that nobody wanted.She had comfort and warmth in the apartment. She had dinner thawing for tomorrow, the small turkey; and the little Thanksgiving bonus from her boss. But most of all, she had love. It was the most important of all.
