Volunteer State

We live in a beautiful state. Not just outer beauty, (which is awesome), but inner beauty. We saw it last year during the flooding in Nashville. The people that came out to help, to volunteer. It was incredible. Well, 3 weeks ago, we were able to help our locals in need. And it was truely inner beauty at its best. Our local church WAS GIVEN a tractor trailer FULL of food...to give out. We took the kids down to help...it was all hands on deck with a massive amount of food to pack up and hand out. The line started early...much earlier than any of us expected. The sad part of it was that this food "helpout" was not advertised and hundreds came...the amazing part is that the food boxes never stopped. For every car that came, every car went away with food...nonstop for over an hour and a half. Car after car after car...I wanted to feel sad for all these people that waited in line FOR FOOD...but then the gratitude, the hesitant smiles, the Thank You's...words cannot describe the feelings we walked away with. Thank you Second Harvest Food Bank for feeding our souls that day!
