"Cold Day In New York"
This is an eye witness account which happened in the City of New York, on a cold day in December
some time ago...
A little boy about 10 years old was standing before a shoe store on Broadway, barefooted, peering through the
window, and shivering with cold. A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why are you looking so
earnestly in that window?"
"I was asking G-d to give me a pair of shoes," was the boys reply. The lady took him by the hand and went into the store,
and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water
and a towel, and he replied:
"Certainly," and quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves,
knelt down, washed his little feet and dried them with a towel.
By this time the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes,
and tying up the remaining pairs of socks, gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said,
"No doubt, my little fellow, you feel more comfortable now?"
As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand, and looking up in her face, with tears in his eyes,
answered the question with these words, "Are you G-d's Wife?"
