A Dream of Lobster
We sometimes forget how much of a luxury it is to be able to eat out at a restaurant, especially during these times when we have to be so careful. While our Residents cannot go out to eat, we are so fortunate to have a Parish group that donates weekly meals from local restaurants around town. We also have many donors who stop by with food donations every day.
One Resident in particular, Bobbi, had expressed that she misses being able to have her favorite lobster tail meal from Red Lobster. Eating there always brought her a little taste of her home in Virginia. We highlighted Bobbi’s story of moving from our Home in Richmond to St. Joseph’s Home in our last newsletter. Amazingly enough, one of our generous donors took it upon herself to provide that meal for her! The donor is a part of an organization called Acknowledging Acts of Kindness (AAOK). This organization promotes a culture of kindness in communities. AAOK encourages sending cards to recognize people when they perform an act of kindness.
Bobbi was so touched, she might have shed a tear after biting into a delicious cheddar bay biscuit. Whether it be one meal, 100 meals, or even some groceries here and there, its amazing what comfort and joy some good food can bring.
We try our best to acknowledge our many friends who perform acts of kindness for us. You can always be assured of our daily prayers.
