Shelter-er or Shelter-ee?
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W. J. Cameron
Melanie came in from her doctor's appointment, sick and having back pain, but with the joyful news from the doctor who said the baby was perfect. Another smile. Another praise. I filled my cart at the grocery store and the man at the checkout asked if I needed help. Assuming he was going to help me I said, "Yes." Instead he asked a lady to take my groceries out. I was embarrassed because she looked older than me (or at least what my perception of me is). She got her coat, hat, mittens...unloaded the bags...I hope she knew my "You've been such a blessing to me today" was heartfelt. As I drove away I was thankful for an abundance of food and a warm van.
