Case in point.
In the area I live, there is a huge population of homeless people. I am not really sure why but there just is.
Tonight Mark and I were out and about waiting for the bus, when a man on a bike came up to us and started rooting through the trash.
He was looking for cans to possibly sell for some cash. His instrument of choice to look through the can? Tongs! That is right, tongs!
The point is here is that tongs are something I think of when I cook spaghetti, a simple tool to pull out food from my pot. Is this what this man was doing when he pulled out cans so he could eat? Hmm...think about that a moment.
So, what am I thankful for tonight? TONGS! But, I am also thankful that I have food on my table every night and I do not have to root around hoping there is a can or two next to some strangers sitting waiting for the bus.
Please keep in mind of our homeless.
