My eyes were opened..

to see how many people have so little. It made me so incredibly grateful for what I have. We put together bags for the homeless at the Anderson's house....everyone brought stuff like apples, oranges, grandola bars, gloves, jackets, hats, blankets, you name it. Fresh & Easy helped us out with some more food and some cool bags to put it all in. Then on another night we took it all downtown...wow. That was an eye opener for me. The girls & kids all stayed in the trucks and the guys got out and handed stuff out. It was crazy...I was driving someone's truck really slow while they handed stuff out and all these homeless guys were eying us through the windows. It was SO crazy. There were tents on the sidewalks lining the road. I felt so happy to have my little home with warm beds!!! It was a good experience, even if it was kinda scary...

Wyatt kept busy too while we put the bags together. Bryson is awesome.
