What a long week. I'm excited because tomorrow I'm taking Baby D to the local Children's Museum, which by the way is awesome! Tomorrow night we are throwing her a Princess Birthday Party! I think I'm just as excited as she is.
On another note, in the area that I do clinical for nursing school I come across a lot of homeless people, and anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for people in the situation. It completely breaks my heart. I met a person this week who had been hit by a car, and during the accident/medical process, he lost his shoes. I came home last night and stood in my heated home staring at my closet full of clothes and shoes and felt compelled to do something. My mom's Sunday school class started something where they pack back packs full of items ( toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, etc) and pass them out to people in need. So I decided this needed to be done I went out to the store last night and put together a bag and also found a good pair of shoes. I left it at the desk for him when I left today. I almost always do the operation shoe box or angel child or something. But something happened last night and I couldn't fight the urge to do something for this person. I'm not writing this post to brag or anything please don't take it that way, I simply wanted to offer a reminder to everyone this holiday season... Don't get caught up in the media and material of the holidays, remember the reason for the season. I recently had someone say, most of us are a paycheck away from poor/homeless and she couldn't have been more right. This year, be thankful for your health, be thankful for your jobs, your family, your friends and if you have the chance to help someone in need, TAKE IT! We're all just human, living this life together until God decides to take us home.
