Lunch with Dot

Our work days
were segmented,
marked by sharing,
growing as friends
spending time
in the side yard
having lunch with Dot.
Sitting with her
over lunch, each day
learning of her story,
her contributions
as we served her
neighbor helping neighbor

Concord, NH and from First United Methodist Church,
Hudson, MA to Jacksonville and Machias, ME
to the Down East Maine Mission,
Jacksonville United Methodist Campground,
East Machias, ME
