One day when it was my turn to cook dinner, which is part of the Child nutrition program at Safehouse, I was making spaghetti. The kids were very excited about the spaghetti. Almost everyone was served and a little boy asked me, "Ms. Margie, can I please get some more?"
I told him that I had to serve every single child first to make sure all the kids get a plate and he looked so sad. So, I let him know that at the end if I had any leftovers that I would give him a second serving.
He said ok and sat the counter waiting patiently and
the hopeful look in his eyes almost broke my heart.
After serving all the children, I asked him if he still wanted another plate of spaghetti and he said, "Yes, and can I get the red stuff too (sauce)?" He handed me the plate and I served him his spaghetti. As I turned around to grab a napkin,
I hear this giggle of joy that I thought came from a video game or toy.
