The sack of holiday goodies was gone! Someone took it out of the back of my truck. I thought, “Oh well, they must have been hungry." Three days later, I came to the gallery and discovered the sack in front of the gate! I looked inside - all the food was gone, but every dish was there, neatly washed and stacked.

We tend to take food for granted, but this experience made me realize how blessed most of us are. The person(s) who ate that food needed it, and perhaps they were in a desperate situation. To have washed and returned our dishes – to me that shows how very thoughtful and thankful they were for that meal. I was reminded that we should not take our good fortune for granted and should always remember to give a helping hand whenever and however we can.
