A friend invited me to participate in an activity I have never done before and I am excited to try it. It involves helping to feed the hungry. I guess it is like working in a soup kitchen. I know in my head that there are many in this community whose basic needs are not met: needs of food, shelter or safety. I will now have the opportunity to learn with my heart what it is to serve my brothers and sisters.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.

    And while you are there think about how very hard it is for many of those folks to be in the asking line instead of the giving line. I know from my experiences this last three years of trying to live on a .2FTE and having to rely on the generosity of friends and family how much I HATE being poor. I HATE asking my mom for money. I would so much rather be on the giving side than the taking side. And unfortunately I didn’t learn anything from the experience except that I want a full time job VERY much so I don’t have to ask anymore.
