Isn't Graham's crazy quilt gorgeous. And all those lovely embellishments.....maybe one day I will have a post with my blocks looking half so spiffy.
In other news, I worked at Carolina Kids today. We bagged food that will go home over the weekend with children who the school thinks might not get adequate food on weekends. In each bag went: Ramen noodle cup, Vienna Sausage, two packs of instant oatmeal, two fruit drinks, a canned vegetable and a book. Over three hundred bags will go home with students in Darlington County.
While we were bagging, a nice looking high schooler came in with his aunt to get some clothes. He was tall and thin but they found a nice coat and a few other things that will fit. I honestly thought he was picking out clothes for someone else. Turns out his aunt is raising him. When you are looking for people who need help you can't always judge a book by its cover.
Hubs is driving kids for the BHHB Wraps program. Usually they are kids in foster care and he either is taking the kids for a two hour visit with the parent or vice versa. A lot of the families have three and four kids in foster care. I certainly don't know the answer to the problem of parents having kids and not caring for them.....but I do know God would want us to care and pray for them.
Those are a few things on my mind these days.....what is on yours?
