as i was in the hospital visiting my mom, i reflected on that morning...and i remembered once again...that there is more to thanksgiving than getting great deals on black friday...or even making the perfect thanksgiving dinner. being on skid row reminded me that we should be thankful for the important things in life...like warm hugs, family and friends. for beds and a roof over our heads...our health...for simple things that make us smile. because that is what makes life worth it.
"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:....Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter - when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?" Isaiah 58: 6-7
to those that made this possible...THANK you for being a vessel of hope. this wouldn't have been possible without your generosity and help. let's do this again real soon ;)
like the Starbucks cup says....try to...
