Blogging is something I do for fun; to look back and see what has really happened through the year….To see if my memories match what truly was, to see who was loved, to see how the children have grown and all the other “stuff” in between.
Now with our seasons changing I wonder, Did I blow the post I should have done about the snow and the fort Stephen built.
They got up very early a cold February morning excited about “doing good” for their fellow man.
It really was a warming site.
The girls were a little nervous a first……
But, they jumped right in and did everything they were asked to do with warm and loving hearts.
Did you know, at the Soup Kitchen they not only give one well prepared feast, they offer; a bag that contains some food for the rest of the day, clothing, and just a few personal items, if they can.
This was my job…..and mostly, the people ,down on their luck at soup kitchen, understood; Most would just take one, and say “thank you” with a smile and then walked away.
After it was all said and done.….The six girls that came with me, giggled all the way home in the back of my van sharing doughnuts, talking about school issues, books they have read, foods they like and how they should wear their hair.
So now here we are……The middle of March.
But somehow the “Time goes on” as I can hear my father say….and we celebrate each and every birthday and all the “mile stones” of our lives.
AND the BIG surprise this year…
I am simply amazed at the kindness of James, Matthew and Stephen. Over the past couple of years……….and mostly this summer……..these three young ‘men’ have kept the grounds beautiful at my parents house.
Every weekend these three guys meet at their grandparents house. They ask what needs to be done around the area and then………they simply do it.
