I learned something over the last couple days.
I am so fortunate that I have never ever felt true hunger, not just ready for a meal, or craving a snack, but real hunger. The kind that burns your stomach and cramps you up. Makes you weak.
I was surprised at the number of people in the Ozarks who are truly hungry. The faces of which are not so different than my own.
There's an amazing circle of people who dedicate there lives to making the world a better place. Oh, I've done my share of helping out, here and there, but these folks do it every day, day in, day out. They don't expect a lot in return, which is awesome. I met Teresa, who told me she gets a great reward, every day, from someone. Whether it's a hug, a thank you, or just a smile from someone she just gave a pair of socks to, she gets her daily reward. That's all she needs. Impressive.
Makes you wonder what impact you'll have on the world today. Makes you want to do more. And that's a good thing.
Thank you very much to all those like Teresa, who spend their days making a difference in popeles lives. Those who do it for the right reasons, I've noticed, don't want much back.
I need to work on being a little more like that. Do a little more. I know I can.
Thank you very much, to all who called in to help feed the hungry on Thursday. You too, did a little bit to make the world a better place. And you didn't ask for anything back. I thank you.
God bless us.
