I had a Tim's card with some credit on it in my bag, and I went over to give it to her, but she was sleeping. I thought I would just leave the card on her chest, but as soon as I got close to her, she screamed and jumped up, and I screamed and jumped away. The people waiting for the bus were mostly embarrassed, but I was in agony---she was shaking, but asking me if I was all right.
Eventually, after learning protocol for the homeless, which includes no sneaking up, and no touching, I was able to give her the card and she told me she was going to have a coffee and one of those donuts with the cream.
We were both pleased.
I just received a note from Tim Horton's telling me my card has just been automatically topped up, as I requested. I don't know if I'm pleased with myself or annoyed with myself, but I'll wait a few days before I cancel the automatic top-up. I hope she tries a couple of the new sandwiches.
