In these times – we have found that the smallest of deeds
bring the biggest rewards!
There is a lady – I call her the CAT LADY!
Simply because she recuses cats!
But – she is in need of newspapers –
so every two weeks we save up our Washington Post
and make the 8 mile drive to deliver them to her front door!
Texting her that they are on her door step!
In the past – we have delivered groceries for our food pantry
Now – we are reaching out in this time of need for donations
to this food pantry – which is aided by the churches in the area.
Usually once a month each congregation collects food
at their services and takes it over.
Since there are no physical services
ours are streamed on line –
The food is not being collected.
Last week we put out a appeal
and Sherry and I took four bags to the drop off site.
We are doing it again this week – people drop off at our front porch
and we in turn take it to the food pantry.
With the shut down – more families need this food!
Staying in touch with local friends
Taking a hot meal to a neighbor who has had a bone marrow transplant
exchanging puzzles with friends and neighbors
Exchanging a onion or face masks with friends
dropping face masks off at the church mail box
for the youth leaders aging grand parents
It all has to do with small deeds – kindness –
giving what you can and knowing how it makes you feel
in this time of SHELTERING!
And then at the end of the week –
Social hour ( hours) with friends who are apart by hundreds of miles
Seeing the smiles – sharing the laughter –
GOOD DEEDS come in small packages.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
