I am a Christian and I really celebrate my faith, the wonderful spiritual friends and family that I have gained through my personal journey with God. I have had ups and I have downs, yet my faith is what keeps me strong and going. So why do I share this personal info with you today?

Well part of my journey has been divorce and the fact that I don't have children as yet ... I have always wanted nothing more than a family, so... I could either get depressed and sit around moping at how my life has panned out, or I can embrace the children who need the love , time , attention and care that I can offer at this place in my life. Lucky for me I get to have both a fabulous Soup Kitchen run by my spiritual family ..sisters and brothers who love on our local disadvantaged community, with the core focus being the kids ....the future of tomorrow.

For me giving has become a lifestyle, one that I embrace whole heartedly. We have Soup/Sandwich Kitchen every second weekend, with yummy sandwiches and ice lollies in summer and hearty soup and bread in winter.
I can honestly tell you that these kids fill up my love tank, every second weekend I get far more than I could ever give. Is it hard giving up the time? ...yes, at times it is. But it is such a small sacrifice in the greater scheme of things, and when it becomes a lifestyle there is occasional flexibility required... but overall life manages to exist around this schedule and progress as usual.

Here are a few of my love tank 'filler uppers' and some of  my Soup/Sandwich Kitchen heroes too....
