As Tony boarded the school bus and headed back home, he carefully guarded the granola bar that he had saved from breakfast. His plan was to make sure that his little brother, Will, would have an afternoon snack today. Last night, Tony tried to be patient with Will, who can be "whiney and obnoxious" when he is tired or frustrated. Tony knows 'hangry' when he sees it. When your tummy is rumbling, it's hard to be kind. So Tony was given an extra granola bar at Hammitt School, where Tony gets breakfast, lunch, and snacks to keep his stomach quiet and mind alert. Tony's Family Advocate will visit his home tomorrow and help Tony's family get their basic needs met.
Generosity sometimes comes wrapped in a granola shaped snack. People give away what they have- whether that be kindness or bitterness, peace or anxiety. Because The Baby Fold has support from the community, we have blessings to pass on to Tony, who can, in turn, show some love for his brother. That is the way of love.
