For last weekends meal of feeding the homeless I needed a cooking helper, since Hilde is in Germany on vacation. I thought I had a young man, Brent, lined up who has been wanting to help cook for a while now, but at the end he couldn't get off work that day. So I had just a few days to find someone else, especially since there was lots to chop & dice.
So the search began with my immediate friends & they had other plans made already since it was kind of last minute & Memorial Day weekend. Everyone kept asking me "what are you going to do??" And I kept saying over & over that I have faith, it all will work out !! :) I must have affirmed that at least six different times, if not more. :)
Now lets back up a little bit. ;) About 30 years ago when my two children, Scott & Steph, were in high school all the kids used to hang out at my house. :) I was always the cool Mom & I liked knowing where my kids were at. :) One of those friends was Faith Cardenas, who lived right around the corner from us. I always liked Faith, but we lost touch when we moved away & for all those years I wondered about where she could be & about how her life is. :)
Recently I saw her name on another friends Facebook & I was really excited to contact her. After all there are not very many Faith Cardenas', it had to be her !! :) Sure enough & we wrote back & forth a couple of times. Then Faith wanted to get together to visit last Friday or Saturday & I told her that I couldn't because I was cooking for & feeding the homeless, since I didn't have a helper for Saturday it would take both days. She got really excited & said that she wanted to help & that she really loves to cook. She also had fed homeless people before on her own. :) Faith was had such a fun time & wants to continue to help & bring her young daughter too at times. :)
So while I was affirming my faith all this time, my friend Faith came back into my life to help. :)
I just had to share this sweet story with you all & hopefully it will be an inspiration to you. :)
