Calling all my Angels again !!

I need to ask for your kind help once more for feeding the homeless here in Tucson.  :)

Hilde & I recently decided to add another weekend of cooking & serving the homeless in the parks, so we will now continuously be doing it two weekends every month.  We also will feed on major holidays throughout the year.  Both of us missed doing this, but since we are getting older we had to cut back some & now we are adding again.   :)  Go figure !!   :)   It's in our hearts !!   :)

There is still a tiny bit of money left over from Christ-mas, but it is running out quickly.  :(   Would you please continue to help out, so we can continue to feed the homeless regularly again ??  Hilde & I will happily do all the work.   :)

Also, I am hoping to put together about 75 small bags again for the homeless for Valentine's Day, filled with candy, chocolates, & cookies.  :)  New socks would be nice too, they are always a huge hit & much needed.   :)   Two schools are having some of their children create Valentine's Day cards to put into the bags too.   :)

If anyone would like to donate cookies, candy, or socks for this occasion I would need them here by February 12th the latest, so I have time to bag them together for Saturday, the 16th.   :)

Thank you once more all my Angels for your Kindness & Help !!   :)

Today's Meal was in my Son's Honor

Today my son would have been 47 years old & I feel that today's meal in the two parks was in his honor.   :)  He was very loving & kind & if he was alive he would be out there in the parks with me serving the food to everyone.   :)    Well, he was with us anyway, sitting on my shoulder.  :)   His favorite food were burritos & pizza, so I ate pizza for him this evening & made a Spirit Plate for him.  

Hilde cooked the most wonderful Turkey Stew today with the help of Mary-Ann, Karen & I.  It was filled with fresh veggies, rice & lots of smoked turkey left over from Thanksgiving.  It was really filling & nurturing, in short, comfort food !!   :)  Thank you Hilde Dear !!   :)  We also had fresh salad & lots of fresh bread. 

Sally baked 72 cupcakes & they were a huge success with the homeless.  :)  There is the famous homeless sweet tooth again.  ;)   Thank you Sally for making all those cupcakes !!  That was awefully sweet of you !!  :)

A thank you shout-out also goes to Marilyn for helping us serve once more !!  It is always fun to have you around, you make everyone giggle with your whimsical humor.   :) 

A big thank you also to Mary-Ann & Karen for helping out with the cooking & serving & everything else that needed to be done !!  :) 

Lee, thank you for donating all those warm clothes & socks & baseball caps too !!  :)  Most of it is gone & I will take the rest to the parks next time I go again.   :)

What an incredible day today has been .... my sons birthday, feeding the homeless, and the full moon.   And the rain cleared up so we could go out & feed today.  It can't get any better than this, really !!   :)
