A very humble and sweet man at church, who has very little money, shared how he often makes an extra PB & J sandwich to give to a homeless woman he passes often. This really touched me. It is such a simple thing to do, but so thoughtful. It really touched me to think of this man, planning ahead and wanting to help this woman.
We decided to follow his example. We have fed the hungry in our community several times, and know where they hang out in a big group. We bought 4 loaves of bread, 1 big tub of peanut butter, and 3 jars of jam. My daughter and her 5 cousins made and bagged the sandwiches all on their own. They worked so hard, and while they did they were so sweet to eachother and really worked as a team. It was very inspiring to see. When we are doing service it really puts us in a great mood.
The children were so excited to hand out the sandwiches, and were surpisingly not shy. I think they were very proud of their work and happy to show their love to others.
This is so easy to do with children and it did not cost very much. I hope you will join our project this week! It was a really fun one.
