By volunteer Bob Hamel
Now they arrive, individually and as families
Faces smiling some black, some white,
Some brown, some old, some young,
They all came.
Not a soup kitchen!
A celebration of a family
Sharing a meal together.
The love it was evident.
See the faces, see the greetings,
See the excitement, see the “thank you” expressed.
I enjoyed my first day as a volunteer.
Returning each week
Seeing my new friends
Serving lunch to our guests
Observing the acts of kindness given.
Thank you Our Lord for this gift of love and
My new friends at Saint Andrew
Whom I admire.
