Literally the heavens have opened up, raining heavily three days straight which have slowed down my food delivery. In between downpours I would run out to do errands for myself , taking a few sandwiches and water. Of course they were gone by the time I reached the one block to the drug store.
The past week was touching as I gave away a few pairs of sox, trying to pace them out because we don’t have a lot. Sitting on a bench was an older man with his cart sleeping. Waking him up to give away the food and water, I noticed his feet which had a very dirty pair of sox. I immediately asked” if he needed a pair?” You would have thought I had given him a Christmas present when he answered, “Yes nice lady.” They have now become part of my arsenal to make their lives tolerable.
I realize I have to create a winter diet of sorts to keep them healthy through proper nutrients for the colder weather. People quite often think because we are California it is sunny and warm. True in southern California but northern it is cold and damp in winter.
At this time of the year many are asking for donations and it is very hard to pick plus handle your own family budgets. However for this project there is nothing too small…small can buy loaves of bread , a container that holds packs of cookies ( usually 6) at the dollar store and of course water ( 3 for 1 dollar) there as well. I can feed a person per day for less than three dollars and they receives five edible items. I know how to stretch donations so many can be reached and satisfied temporally mentally. physically and hopefully Spiritually…
Next Installment: coming soon..
