it's a little hard when you're expecting a cornucopia
when a few cans of tuna show up on the doorstep;
the kind that look suspiciously like

relabeled cat food.
everything helps, you tell yourself

wiping away a few tears
in time for the highlights of
the great Liturgical Years.

P.S. It may be hard until you remember the parable of the Loaves and Fishes and then it becomes exciting to see how much God can help you stretch your resources! This is real.
