Team Metatron (Ramona, Fran, Nellene, & Jerri) came together on Nov. 22nd to share our special Thanksgiving meal for our 95th (ninety-fifth) S.A.S.S. !!! We also shared 55 backpacks stuffed with various items, so Tracy also joined us and we loaded her SUV with the backpacks. Just when we think our weekly SASS couldn't get any better... along comes this year's Thanksgiving Share!!!
!!!Thank you, our friends and supporters... and fellow Starlight Angels for continually sending LOVE and BLESSINGS our way!!!
60+ Thanksgiving Meals... + 7 Turkey Sandwiches...+ 55 Stuffed Backpacks
THOUGHTS AND REFLECTIONS.... With so many precious and amazing moments, where do I begin??? ... Well... There was the man who looked so beaten down... He thought that he was left out until he saw me backtracking with a meal and backpack just for him. His friend was so happy for him... to have something of his own. Finding happiness and joy in someone else's good fortune... how precious!
... or the woman that suddenly appeared with 2 small children. The girls sat down on the sidewalk and started eating their meal while mom stood watch, holding her jaw with one hand... I hugged the woman and all I could say was "Thank You"... I thought it was such an odd thing to say at the moment. Then, without missing a beat, the woman whispered in my ear, "You're welcome". While I was getting in the car, one of the little girls smiled at me and waved while she was eating her pumpkin pie.
... Then there is the man who would always get his meal and go off by himself to eat without saying a word to anyone. We hadn't seen him in months. Today, he waited for us. With all the city changes, I wondered how he knew where we would be. But, he looked great and briefly talked with us. Fran shared the conversation he had with her... about the Thanksgiving meal last year. He had opened his dessert, which was pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. It looked beautiful... He said that when he opened it, he cried because he hadn't had anything like that in such a long time. It's amazing how simple things touch people's hearts. More so, it's amazing how food that is made with loving hands and blessed with Love and Light can bring powerful healing on any level.
I heard stories of how one of our friends had miraculously been provided for... Keith was so excited telling his story to Tracy and I that we didn't think he was ever going to wind down... lol.
But, my favorite of all was our last stop by Home Depot. Sometimes we only see 1-2 people, but by the time we get out of our car, a crowd has formed around us... lol. Ramona shared her conversation with one dear man who said, "We look forward to you every week. We miss our families, and you are our family now". They were so very happy with their backpacks. We even had very nice winter coats that we were able to share. One man put on his new coat. I straightened the collar for him... and instantly, he was looking very proud.
I know that the blessing is mine... I am so very grateful to have the ability to serve my brothers and sisters every Sunday. They are precious and we love them. Starlight Angels will continue to reach out and touch as many as possible with the Love and Light of our Creator!!!
