Today, as part of the Junior Catholic Daughters of America, my daughter helped pack boxes with food for our parish to give away to needy families.
Later, as we wandered through Wegman's picking up a few things like milk and eggs and she told me that she was glad she had helped out today, and that it made her realize how lucky we were. We may not be the richest people she knows - in fact we most certainly are not - but she knows that we are lucky, because we don't have to rely on other people to provide us with our food. And we are very lucky. And even luckier because we can help other people too.
