It’s funny to think that hope looks like the Cookie Monster, but it does.
I spent today receiving gifts from churches, attorney’s offices, apartment complexes and knitting circles. Gifts that will be spread out on Saturday for the annual Mary’s Place Santa Store, where moms and grandmoms can come and pick out a toy for their special munchkin. Moms and Grandmoms who want so desperately to give their children stability, love and hope. And when they have trouble giving the gifts that can be wrapped and tied up with sparkly bows, well, that’s when this incredible community steps in to help out.
So yeah, today, hope looked a little bit like Cookie Monster. Thanks be to God.
