Pop(SICKLE) up in Old North
Imagine 10 degrees and a Wind....
On Friday morning at 8 AM, our hearty community gathered at the bustop near our house. We had hot coffee, 48 donuts, a poster that said "We Hope For...." and warm smiles. It was FREEZING cold. Perhaps I already mentioned that? The bus stop was not busy. Many of those waiting had just eaten breakfast and delcined a donut or coffee. However, we had six hearty neighbors who were happy to get a coffee or a donut. Of the six, half were homeless. So, we didn't encounter a lot of people, but the ones we met shared their stories and their warmth. It felt important to be there. We left with chilly hands and warm hearts. Woud we do it again? Yes. For sure. And we will!!
