Ain't Garbage

Every thursday me and my friends have a free dinner at a local Episcopalian church. I think it is such a wonderful thing they do for us poor students. It is so nice. I always wonder how we can thank them enough for what they do for us. It is hard, because it isn't like we see them every day.

Today, on our way to the church we passed an older lady with two dogs. We stopped, of course, to pet them. The lady was very kind, and was telling us what was for dinner and how much time they put into it. She was not boasting, but rather, she was just telling us how much she loved us. She continued walking away. After our delicious FREE dinner we walked out of the church, and the older lady was walking back towards us once again. She needed help with taking the garbage cans back to the building where they would be cleaning up after dinner. We gladly helped her take them around the corner and back to the church.

I am not boasting. I am not trying to do that at all. I love helping others, and to actually do it without complaint made it so wonderful. It just felt so good to do something so simple for a little thing. It was definitely not garbage:)
