Week 59 – Giving Thanks

November 22, 2009

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, Ben and I have almost whipped ourselves into a frenzy.  We’re hosting our favorite holiday this year with those we love.  We have so much to be thankful for and we are so lucky to have family and friends so close to make it special.

Before we sought after the largest turkey we could find, we headed to an abandoned spot in West Seattle to quickly fill a couple buckets.  Talk about bounty!  But we give thanks for where we live and the people we live near and we do our part to help the community as much as we can.

Speaking of help, we also help with collecting donations to Seattle’s Northwest Harvest. They are a wonderful organization who helps in feeding the hungry.  Please visit their website to find out about their convenient drop off locations or giving in other ways.

Last year when we dropped off buckets of food that had been collected at my work place the people who worked there ran to help us in the rain.  They commented on the hundreds of pounds of food that had already gone out that day and the thousands of people they had lined up the previous day.

Picking up (in more ways than one) and dropping off never felt so good.
