I left the house at 7am to go to my service project today. I met up with my sorors at the Supermarket and took our shopping lists and our money and shopped. Each one of us was shopping for a family in need. We planned on feeding 30 families in the Philadelphia area. On my list was a 13 pound turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, vegetables, sweet potatoes and an apple pie.
After purchasing the requested items, we met at our designated location to box up the items for the delivery. A different team of sorors was responsible for delivering the food door to door.
Later in the day, we all met up at a local food bank and helped to package meals for the Holidays for visitors that would inevitably come through their doors in the next few days.
I was so mindful of what Thanksgiving is all about. Sharing abundance, being with your family and preparing a meal with love. That’s it. One simple meal.
While I make spreadsheets full of the very best ingredients, someone else wanted $50 worth of groceries to cook a simple meal for their family.
I am humbled by the experience and thankful that I was able to help.
My life is good and for that, I am grateful. Happy Thanksgiving Week.
