I love Saturdays!
Woke up at nine o'clock this morning and wondered if life gets any better than this! It's the one day that we are both home with no obligations. Well, no REAL obligations anyway. The youth at the church are holding a car wash for donations of unperishables to give to needy families around Thanksgiving. Such nice, thoughtful kids. We are taking canned cranberry sauce and boxed stuffing and potatoes, canned corn and green beans, jars of gravy, pie crust mix, pumpkin pie mix, and the always needed evaporated milk and cream of mushroom soup. The church will donate turkeys. I love Thanksgiving so much! When I was little my family was one of the needy families and I remember how grateful my parents were when people brought us Thanksgiving dinner. She had been making a chicken. And we had potato salad. I can still remember her face when they brought us everything. That was over twenty years ago. Now my parents are well off and are the ones giving heartily to the community. What goes around, comes around, they say. Usually people say that as a warning, but I believe it works in the good ways, too.
Well, the big guy is up, so I guess we are headed off to the car wash.
