I had an interesting experience today.
I don't know if I've ever shared with you all what I do? I teach nutrition classes to low-income, fixed-income families/individuals. Flexible with great benefits. What could be better? ANYWAY...
In January, I connected with a local pastor who is trying to get a non-profit organization up and running. The organizations she wants to facilitate would help women who have been incarcerated acclimate back in to society. She has grand plans to offer educational classes, counseling/therapy, job training, parenting classes and of course nutrition. (among other things)
She had been meeting with the women at our county jail, getting to know them, why they were there, finding out what their needs "on the outside" were, etc. And so my weekly nutrition classes in the library at the county jail started.
I was a little nervous the first week, getting past the lobby was the creepiest part. The women are interesting, and I am learning things I never knew I didn't know.
But TODAY, while doing some shopping (at WalMart of course) I ran into one of the girls!
It was so strange to see her. I guess perhaps because the only way I had ever seen her was in blue scrubs and rubber shoes.
She looked different in make-up and street clothes!
