Thank You Everyone !!

It now has been two months already since my beginning the "Food Blessings in a Backpack" and 452 meals have been provided so far to the Munchkins at "Outer Limits School".  :)

What a joy it is to do this and the gratitude received is immense !!  :)   I just love the notes from the parents and some from the kids too, and the thank you phone calls.  It nurtures and wants me to do more !!  :)  I sneak candy in the backpacks and other little treats and I feel like a sneaky lil' grandma then.  :)  :)

At times I get stories from the staff or the parents.  Blanca and Mini, who work the front desk at Outer Limits School, told me that some of the children start asking on Wednesday if they get their backpack today??  Of course they are told, not until Friday.  So on Thursday they come back and ask again if it is Friday yet?? No, not until tomorrow.  :)  I can just picture it all !!  :)

One grandma told me that her two grandsons empty everything out on the floor when they come to her house after school on Friday and then just get so excited about it all.   :)  It has become a weekly ritual.  And they are always so proud to carry their backpacks home.  :)

A 10 year old girl hand-made the sweetest Thank You card from her and her lil' brother.  I will try to post it after this entry.  :)

Got to go for now, will write more later, after I figure out how to post the pictures on here.  :)
