Something's are so good it worth writing sub plans over. Going to the Bishop's Storehouse is one of those things.
Today, I went with a friend from church to help fulfill our ward's assignment to work at the storehouse. We enjoyed talking for the hour ride up there. So much so, that I missed a turn and ended up on the turnpike. Oops! I turned around...are you allowed to do that? Then I was so worried about turning around at the toll booth that I went into a pass only lane. Oops, part 2! The toll booth worker said you can't be in this lane if you don't have a pass. I said, I just made a wrong turn and really didn't pay attention to the sign, can you let me through? (Wonder what she would have thought if I'd told her I was a teacher who didn't follow directions?) I wonder how many times a day that happens? I sure did feel silly.
No worries, even with the crazy driver me missing the exit we still got there on time. We spent our morning packing orders. There were a lot of orders in these tough economic times.
I am always amazed at how many families can be taken care of by generous fast offerings from members of the church. I am also amazed at how the Lord's grocery store is so much smaller than where I shop, but how it feeds so many. It's always fun working with members; we bumped into to each other and got in each others way, but there was no arguing, or name calling, just happy, patient people working to serve those in need. I wish I could have more days during the week like this...it just fills the soul with happiness.
