I'm still on a real emotional high from last night's successful dinner at Ronald McDonald House. That's why today was a great day to go back to Second Helpings at the church and tell my friends there that I'd been able to put some of the lessons that I've learned about mass food prep to work.
It was a very cold day in Lubbock again, and the menu at Second Helpings had some good cold weather foods - a big pan of macaroni and cheese, meaty lasagna, fried chicken, and several kinds of vegetables. It was also the first time that I noticed moms there with their children, now that school is out.
Not much new or exciting from today's visit, but I've decided that Second Helpings isn't just going to be an Advent thing for me. I'm going to try and make it there every Tuesday from now on.
My kids are out of school, so they'll be joining me for tomorrow's service!
Gratitude Project: I'm very grateful for the time that I'll have with the kids these next few days!
