One of the many blessings of visiting America was having a chance to purchase clothes that fit. We came back with one large suitcase full of clothing, all in our size, ready for us to sweat in every day of the next year or two.
In light of these purchases, we thought we would purge our closets of the clothes we no longer need in an effort to keep things simple. We each chose a small pile of things and put them into a garbage bag. We then took them outside and placed them beside the trash can nearest to our neighbors’ yard, where we usually set items that are clearly of value to them.
One woman watched Stephen set it down and quickly went over to grab it. We watched from the window as she walked toward her house.
She opened the bag while she walked, and we heard a loud gasp. She then began to run into her house, with quite a few women following, and they each came out a few minutes later with a few treasures.
