Tuesday , I was confronted with an empty bread basket. The pack I prepared consist of a sandwich and a box of raisins. I didn’t even have enough water for the packs. I went with what I had and of course it would be the day I was asked for water. I had to be realistic and reaching 1000 hungry mouths may not happen. When I arrived home ( not defeated but tired) I went to my mailbox absent-mindedly and there was a check for the project from my brother Walter. He read the project’s blog and knew there was a cry out for donations. Spirit is so aware when it gets down to the bone and sends in the crucial help as needed!

After I purchased food (enough for 10 days) I went about passing out the rest of the packs. Saw Janice but could not have a private conversation with her because a homeless man was helping her to move her boxes. Also came upon the couple who had been relocated because as the male said “Obama moved in”. They opened a recruiting office in a closed storefront which cause them to look for another isolated place.

I saw Jacob (twin) with the group of teen homeless and looked as if he was high from grass. He was coherent enough to ask for food however I had none left. Telling him and others I run across, I am out of food hurts my heart.

The next day as I sat on the bus adjusting my Carly Cart sat a lady I worked with at Neiman Marcus many years earlier and who is Iranian. Understanding what I was going to do after I got off the bus, she began a narrative about how she and her husband feed people on the street once a month. They buy about 60 sandwiches from Quiznos and pass them out in another area of the city. I don’t doubt her at all as I do know she host nice ‘get togethers’ and is a giving person. This is her host country and yet she just see hunger and want to be part of the answer.

To all those taking up this burden of love I say Thanks to you, please don’t give up.. this is so much more than food.

Blessings All
