Our First Foray

July 21st, 2017 at 06:06 pm

We're joining together with some folks from church to serve dinner at a local AODA halfway house tonight. We've talked about it for a while, but they had an emergency opening in our three monthly dinners there, so we signed up. One family is bringing chili and cornbread, another desserts, and I thought a big fruit salad and some veggies and dip would be a nice addition. It should be a good experience for all of us. I'm aware sometimes of the bubble we live in most of the time. One of our members is on the board and she has shared some amazing stories.

All of this prompted a big shopping trip to Costco yesterday for fruit and veggies. But 85% of them will go out with us tonight, and I'm helping a friend move tomorrow and will bring the rest with me then.

Packing for London now!

    Thank you for your generosity of time, effort and money to serve your church so directly at an AODA Halfway House. That's truly a huge effort, satisfying but returning home exhausted.

    I was trying to imagine following up that effort by helping a friend move along with even more food the following day.

    Hats off! Wow!
