Saturday is always special to us here at the MLKHP. It was still a somber day, however one we approached with a zest for life. Having had a rough week, due to the loss of one of our original friends out there, it just became even more important to us to show our friends the love and support they need to not only survive, but to recalibrate, reinvigorate, and get back to a state of self sufficiency. However, yesterday we just wanted to show kindness and share the kindness of others with our friends. So after we received two separate donations of hot dogs and buns, we bot only provided all of our friends with their usual lunches and all that comes with the lunches. We also were able to give everyone a hot dog and a juice drink. Oh the smiles, and the reminiscent revelations of the great memories the hot dogs evoked were amazing!! The goal was achieved, and everyone was very pleased and very thankful. Unbeknownst to them, it is we who are thankful that they allow us into their lives, and into their hearts!! So we really had a wonderful day of service to our friends, but also to our furry friends of our friends. Yesterday was International Homeless Animals Day, so we showed our little four legged buddies extra loving yesterday, and they too were thankful and joyfully appreciative! It was really a beautiful day, and one in which we could just take the time to embrace the simple things in life! So we will certainly get back after it, and see y’all in the streets of Vallejo, CA next week!!
