The Man in the Park

There was a man sleeping on the bench in the park the other morning. He was fully dressed in nice clothes, his shoes were clean (and white) and he looked a little embarrassed to be woken up as we walked by. I said good morning to him, he replied the same. I said, 'how are you', he politely replied, 'rough night'. I didn't think anything of it. I figured he was out late drinking and slept on the bench instead of driving home. A couple days later, I was walking through the same park, and...

The Cat Came Back the Very Next Day

I was listening to this conversation between a mom and a daughter at the park. It came from this little cat that visits everyone that comes to the park. I would say the daughter was about 8 years old. She quickly fell in love with this very welcoming and friendly cat. The daughter says to the mom, 'I just love this cat so much, it's friendly, loves for me to pet it, it follows me around the park while we're here and it might not even have a home. Can I take it home mommy, please, plea...

10 Burgers for 10 Homeless

10 Burgers for 10 Homeless - We were having lunch the other day and saw a few people standing near the library we were walking by that looked like they were homeless, we thought maybe they were hungry too. Maybe they didn't have lunch? After a short conversation we went to the McDonalds across the street and grabbed 10 burgers to bring to them. No not the healthiest of choices but, I figured it's better than nothing, and if you haven't eaten in a couple days.... We met a man named Jeff, wh...

First, start with a cooked grain (quinoa, rice, lentils...

A Man that Makes Birdhouses

So this might be a stretch but I thought I'd at least try to help out and reach out to our TRUE FORM community here to see if we could get more people involved. There is this older man at the market in Olds that makes bird houses by hand. I asked him how he was doing, he said he's doing ok. I said how is business, he gestured 'not so good'. Then he told me he'll try one more week and if he doesn't sell he'll move on. Kind of makes me sad, he puts all this time and effort into making these ...
