Empty Purse

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Ruth searched frantically through her purse looking for her wallet. She had to have more than just a handful of coins left for the rest of the week. Her husband was miserly and gave her just a small amount barely amounting to enough to cover everything for the week. She kept rummaging in her purse, she had to find the wallet.

A charitable passerby stopped and asked, “Do you need help ma’am?”

“Oh, I can’t find my wallet and I have to get the kids something to eat!”

Handing her a twenty-dollar bill he told her to go feed the kids.

“Oh, thank you. You are so generous!”
