The Little Things That Helped Open My Eyes
Could I get what I considered to be proper nutrition on the food budget of the average older person on SNAP? That was the challenge that I set for myself.
I was able to meet the challenge, but the big eye opener and heart opener for me was how much I had to give up in order to do it. It turned out not to be a challenge at all but an exercise in gratitude. There are so many, many things that I simply had been taking for granted. It was a stark and sad reminder that there are indeed two Americas.
