It was the hardest time I've ever known. I had been working on some crocheted hats that I was going to try to sell locally, and instead I handed them out at the shelter. The workers actually brought me yarn so that I could make a hat for everyone there. It's still hard to think about, but the gratitude that those people showed to me for a simple hat is a lesson that I will never forget.
