A Blessing a Day In the Month of May #2: the Food Stamps Program

A Blessing a Day In the Month of May: Blessing #2
By Patty L. Fletcher

Strawberries, Blueberry Waffles, Peanut Butter and Hot Coffee with Creamer too.
Does that sound trivial to you?
To me it was wonderful. I savored every bite.
It was for my Bubba and me a breakfast delight.
For many moons breakfast I have had to do without.
Never had the money for that. Always needing to buy something else for sure there was no doubt.
Finally realizing I could do no more, I swallowed my pride and found myself applying for assistance once more.
Now this morning thanks to the Food Stamps program, some, with it they would do away, I can have a healthier happier more productive day.
I ate slowly, enjoying every bite.
Making sure to receive all Mother Father’s glory and might.
So, it is with boundless joy and gratefulness this poem to you I do write.
I ask you for these much-needed programs please help me fight.
I know there are those who take advantage, yes for sure this is true.
But.
This I do say to you, there are many more out there who without this program they could not do.
I say thank you for the Strawberries, Blueberry Waffles, Peanut Butter and Hot Coffee with Creamer too.
Heck even my Bubba Dog raises a paw up to you.
Why?
Because I dropped a strawberry and he said, “No worries mom, I’ll clean that up for you.”
And Slurp! It was gone.
Blessid be to the Department of Human Services Food Stamps program and all those who make it possible.
