I thought of many things I’d love to do to honor Dallas on her birthday. I decided to make blessing bags for the homeless. I posted online hoping for donations and the outpouring of love was tremendous.
I had a friend who worked for a hotel bring me boxes and boxes of supplies. I had a good friend at my Celebrate Recovery make up her own bags to go with mine with snacks. The National Honor Society at the high school where I teach brought in items, too. Just so much love for the homeless and for Dallas’s memory.
The bags were put together on a Friday night with some of my wonderful friends at Celebrate Recovery. Some of them had never even met me, but was more than happy to help.
I have more than 100 bags put together waiting to be handed out. It’s rained the last 2 weekends, so I’m waiting for a nicer day to hand them out. I will more than likely have the girls with me, so I may end up taking them all to the Union Mission in downtown. I’d love to meet some of the people who will benefit from other’s generosity, but if I don’t that’s totally okay, too.
