Some weeks are like that. Things happen that complicate life. This week the water heater and the washing machine went out. This is quite challenging when you feed over a hundred people a day and do between 5 to 10 loads of wash every day. It can make things stressful but you do what needs doing. Breath deep, stay centered, remember the mission, and say a lot of prayers that go something like this — “help!”
Tonight I am doing about five loads of laundry at home — towels, washrags, and aprons.In the process I am feeling thankful for our core volunteers who do all this demanding work everyday. Thanks be to God!
Two days to go — please no more breakdowns!
