For the most part, my customers are thoughtful. They usually smile when we see each other. And if we have missed one another for a while, some will ask me how I have been.
We know very little about the other. But a few have asked me if I have somewhere to stay, and I do. One person asked me if I had enough clothes when the weather began to cool.
Their positive attitude just makes me feel good seeing them. I have some customers who take a few minutes to chat with me. I enjoy their company, and we often end up laughing about something.
On special holidays, some give me a couple of extra dollars. A couple now use the Street Sense Media App and feel it is a convenient way to pay vendors. Recently, two customers each gave me a loaded gift card from a well-known coffee shop. I can get a cup of coffee and a sandwich.
Some say they buy the paper often because they enjoy reading it. I appreciate them and hope God will bless them.
