Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
We left our New York apartment about noon yesterday and spent the next 7 hours either riding the train, the bus or sitting in LaGuardia airport! The family whose apartment we were staying in were coming in that afternoon so we wanted to be out before they got there. We left it in great shape and she wrote and thanked us for being able to walk into a clean, neat apartment.
We didn't get in until about 11 last night, but for the first time in 2 weeks I felt clean. For some reason I never feel completely clean in New York. We got dirty pretty quickly though, because we jumped right in today and went to the Lost Sheep warehouse to work. I am attaching a picture of Tommy working in the food. That is our main job....keeping the food organized that goes out on the food trucks each week. We send 10 a week out into what we call "food deserts." That means places where it is difficult for people to get to grocery stores who are in the low income bracket.
It was good to be in New York, but it is also good to be here. The picture I sent in an earlier blog says it all....we are exactly where we are supposed to be. I think that will be my phrase for the new year. I pray that all of you will be exactly where you are supposed to be this year. Happy New Year early!
