I have been MIA this past week but I'm back and trying to catch up.
Lets see... what have I been up to...
(btw, do you see my little friend, I finally got a crock yay)
Last week Friday my dad and I went to the transitional housing project and brought dinner to the homeless. It was such a wonderful, humbling and fufulling experience I've had in a long time.
We brought a huge pot of Portuguese Bean Soup, warm dinner rolls with butter, lemonaid and even cookies for dessert. The people in the shelter were all so nice and appreciative.
There was a woman and her child, very smart boy and very polite and it just broke my heart as a mother. Sometime you really have to slow down from your busy life and do something for someone who is less fortunate.
Life can be tough and we're all struggling in our on way and fighting our own battle. When you take the time to think about what you have and what others don't life doesnt seem that bad anymore.
I went home and even if it was messy I was glad to have my home. I took a hot shower and thanked God that I had the chance to do so. I went to work the next day, happy and greatful that I had a job to go to that helps me to pay my mortgage.
every most Tuesdays, I ask you all, what are you thankful for?
It doesn't have to be a story like mine, it can be as easy and simple as Im thankful I finally finished my project, I'm thankful I didnt get a ticket whatever it is share it with us.
And one more thing... I'm thankful for all 'yall who take the time to stop by and check out my ramblings.
