I've recently discovered a young person, actually a family of them, who are living in poverty only one block from me. It's one of those situations where things probably could be better, aren't likely to get better, yet aren't quite bad enough to call some sort of hotline. While I can't do much of anything financially, I can provide a place to wash clothes and get clean. So, that's what I've been busying myself with lately.
I can't tell you what it meant today to know that one sweet little 12-yr.-old went to school completely clean and odor-free for the first time in who knows when. AND, she was dressed in a snazzy pirate-girl outfit I'd made her for our dress-up day. She looked as if she felt like a million bucks!
I'll catch up more later.
love and grace,
