So, a great many things made me angry in the course of the day. I won't tell you about them, because I am a modest girl, and you would be ashamed of some of the things I thought about saying in such situations.
My medicine for a bad day: To talk about happy things. Or write. But happy things first, then maybe I will write.
Today I went to a church in my town and filled these little baggies with a soup which can feed about 10 people for 70 cents per bag. We filled enough bags to feed over a thousand people today. It made me happy to be helping that large of an amount of people to get a single meal. Think about it: we have the luxury of eating three meals per day, with snacks in between. We always have food. These people, who are living in poverty, sometimes go without food for a while. This soup that my friends and I packed for them may be the first complete meal they have had in a long time. And the soup sounded delicious, too! It had seasonings (not quite sure exactly what kind), rice, soy protein, barley, garlic powder, dehydrated mixed herbs, peas, carrots, and potatoes. I didn't have any to eat, but it sure sounded yummy. I want to go help again, and maybe I will later this week. :)
Tonight is girls night: daddy and my brother are both busy. So I gotta get that homework done. :)
