Though I couldn't see behind her mask, I could see the tears in her eyes as I placed eggs, freshly picked strawberries,and locally sourced meat in her backseat.
As I began to shut her door, she turned and looked at me and said, "Please be sure to tell everyone 'thank you'. I appreciate so much all that you all are doing for us."
This was not Susan's* (87 years old) first visit to our drive through pantry. Each time she came through the line, I could sense the anxiety in her eyes as she showed me her market card. But as she spoke to me for the first time this week, I could hear the comfort in her voice; almost as if newly realizing she would have food to eat for the week.
Newly resting that she would not need to venture out to the store and risk her health. Newly realizing that she was not, and has not been, alone during this crisis.
