So I did not have the picture of my friend Tony Attaway to post on my last blog post, but I found this one that my stepdad Brian took and it kind of shows what I want you to see.
Tony tells me he does not take it well when someone says nice things about him. He also said that he does not think he did so many good things when he was my age.
I don’t believe you Tony!
Tony is my friend from the Emmanuel Dining Room. He works for the Ministry of Caring. He is there every weekend when I deliver bags. He says I am his little hero and I want him to know he is also a hero of mine. He makes it his job to feed people who are hungry. But he does not just feed them food. He talks to every single person who comes to eat at the soup kitchen. He helps then find a table to sit. He knows their names.
I am trying very hard to make sure that when I give out my 3B bags that I also talk to who receives them. That I tell them I hope they have a good day. That I learn their names!
Tony. Tony. Tony.
I know it was not what you wanted to be surprised by me at my 3B Summer Celebration. But I am so happy you came and I am so happy I could give you an award. You deserve it!
P.S. When I get the photos from Danielle Quigley (our beautiful photographer friend) I will send on to Ms. Dorine so she can give it to you.
Oh and one more thing.
Catrina Sharp from Gals That Give she challenged me to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
I accepted of course!
I nominated my Mom, my Uncle Greg and my buddy Senator Bryan Townsend!
