Went to 'feed the homeless'
except they were people.
Ever do that.
Group people only to find out they are individuals.
The homeless are people.
in this case, people with kids.
smart, funny kids.
One is so smart he is in the gifted and talented program in his school.
Another one is mad at Santa because he missed his chimney last year.
They enjoyed making cookies.
They ate their food.
Then they go upstairs to their temporary rooms.
The switch churches each week.
So they only stay one week at each place before they move on.
It's one thing to see adults in that situation.
quite another to see kids in that situation.
especially the kid that is pissed at Santa.
He called him (santa) a big fat dummy.
(Not that I can blame him....)
My kids have never had santa miss the chimney, and have never NOT known where they are going to sleep.
Watching those kids and their ability to have fun in spite of all the upheaval in their lives was enlightening to say the least.
I am grateful.
I only walked 1.6 miles today and I have to get some stuff done for christmas so can't do much else.
I will be heading to the gym tomorrow morning and am really looking forward to it.
As much as I am looking forward to crawling into my own bed tonight.
And brushing my teeth while looking into my bathroom mirror under my own roof.
I will be praying for those families and for the kids.
Have a great night.
I will be posting tomorrow and then I will be on Christmas break for a few days.
Have a great night guys.
