Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY, and I am thankful (especially tonight; the coldest night of the season) for our comfy cozy warm townhouse! As my husband and I have before gone into D.C. to help out with McKenna’s wagon [Matt MUCH MORE than I],
…a side story on why I don’t go anymore= I once went on a McKenna’s wagon trip with Matt. Matt and I were serving warm food out of the back of the van. A random man cut out of the line, and (all within a few seconds) he walked up to me, hugged me, put a Hawaiian Lay around my neck and said “you’re sexy!” and then he walked away. Matt was standing right next to me as all of this happened, Matt was in the middle of serving food to someone, so he couldn’t stop the man. Needless to say, Matt didn’t like that, and will no longer let me help with McKenna’s wagon trips.
where volunteers from our church distribute food to the homeless people on the streets. I am reminded again at Christmastime, when our church hosts the hypothermia clinic for those living on the streets, to stay overnight in the church and get out of the cold. I am reminded of how good we’ve got it, in our nice warm house out of the howling wind with chills of 0 degrees at night, but we are blessed enough to be nice and warm in our basement.
