November 27th, 2009


"I'm here to volunteer."
"Well, praise the Lord, honey. I'm Thelma."
And then started a flurry of activity as
Thanksgiving dinner for the guests of
was prepared.

"Katie typed up some instructions/directions
for us to find everything. Do you have
a copy of that?"
"Child, I've been doing this for 14 years.
We just find the stuff wherever it is.
You can round up 140 dinner plates if you will."

Thelma took charge of me and 15 or so
other volunteers who were spending
their day serving dinner to families who
were unable to be home because
they had loved ones staying at local hospitals.

In Thelma's presence, we were
all rookies in our roles as
human helpers.
