Another successful meal served today in the two City parks. Hilde made her incredible Spanish rice (one of my favorites of hers), I made my cowboy beans, and together we made the Sloppy Joe's & the tossed salad. It is always fun to spend time in the kitchen together & I always look forward to those days. :) It is when we cook & talk about this, that & the other. :) It feels so much like mother & daughter time. We also had cookies & of course water for everyone.
Marilyn came again to help serve the food & I am very grateful for your help & for being so constant in showing up !! :) You are much needed & much appreciated too !! :) Thank you always, dear Friend !! :)
Hilde came to the parks too to serve the food & today for the first time her daughter Liz, & Hilde's Great-grandson Michael (16) came too to help. How wonderful to be able to spend a little time with everyone !! :) Thank you all for helping out too !! :)
Ever since we took a few months off, the homeless have been extra grateful to all of us & we so appreciate all their heartfelt thank yous & their help in setting up the table & food !! :)
We are not feeding quite as many people yet as we did before. Word is still spreading that we are back & every time there are a few more people that show up. So it is growing & it will just take a little time to build it up again. Today we fed 47 people. Please say prayers that the hungry people will find us !!
I also wanted to send out this request. :) It would be so awesome if we had home-made cookies again, and not just for the special holidays. :) So if there is someone out there who likes to bake a lot & often please call me. The homeless love sweets & cookies are a big treat for 'em all. :) We've been giving out store bought cookies, but they don't have the Love in them that home baked ones do. :)
Good Night now to you all & Sleep with the Angels !! :)
