Lunch Bunch

November 2018

It’s not joy that makes us grateful; it’s gratitude that

makes us joyful.

Some memories are unforgettable remaining ever

vivid and heartwarming.

Each year as the Lunch Bunch gets ready for our holiday church/community lunch, it is good to take time to remember and to be grateful.

We remember Emeline, as she would slowly maneuver her walker towards the door; she would always stop at the door, slowly turn towards us and quietly say “Love you guys”.

We remember Pearl, who was in her 90’s, said when we thought of canceling our Christmas lunch because of an ice and snow storm “oh, you can't cancel our lunch, it’s Christmas, all my friends are gone, and you are my family now”.

We had 45 people show up that day even with the blizzard going on outside; it was the best Christmas gift ever.

Thanksgiving, is one of our favorite days of the year, because it reminds us to give thanks and count our blessings and be thankful for what we have.

A meal is the whole experience of getting together and sharing with friends;

it is more than food.  We have been blessed; we have seen our Church/Community lunch turn strangers into friends.  One of the most important things you can do on the earth is to let people know they are not alone.
