Prove It Clarksville: Day Eight: Oatmeal and Offerings

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Well, it’s day eight, but who’s counting?

I wanted to get to my spot by 10:00am this morning, so I got up and headed out early to catch the bus, not even taking the time to eat my oatmeal. The oatmeal, by the way, has been a lifesaver.

This past winter when we were doing the warming shelters, Mat Lasater (of Lasaters) donated these cool little cups of oatmeal, and all you have to do is add warm water, so I brought some with me to see how they do out in the woods … and from this point on, they’ll be standard issue in Manna Café’s homeless bags.

Jhesika Jade Riggins and her boys dropped off some money and a sweet tea for me.
