I lead a Bible study group every Friday at a local nursing home, its my favorite hour of the week.  Sixty short minutes to share with a group of older folks I’ve come to love.  Each week I learn a little more about them, for instance last week a conversation about tomatoes led to a discussion about BLT’s.

If bacon makes everything better, a bacon, lettuce  and tomato sandwich must be the perfect food.  I know they’re my favorite and have been since childhood.  My Mom use to make the best, with tomatoes and lettuce fresh from our garden and the bacon once rolled in the mud just beyond the garden fence.

Mom is part of my Bible study group and we were deep in discussion about tomatoes when another resident of the home mentioned they only get bacon a few times per week, and even then only one piece per person.

One piece……

I can’t get it out of my mind.  I can not imagine a life in which bacon is such a treat that I would only see 3 pieces a week.  Where did her life go off the tracks that landed her in such a situation.  And why can’t I save her……
