It was a cold and blustery night in Chicago last evening. The forecast had been so bad that many schools notified students and their families that they would be closed for the day, before the snowstorm started. Many guests at the regular Tuesday Night Supper walked in chilled and bundled head to toe in coats, scarves and gloves, understandably weary from facing the elements all day.
But not Kurt J. He walked into the Tuesday Night Supper with his jacket open, snow covering his hat and his face wet with melting snow. He smiled from ear to ear and his eyes were full of joyful expression as he walked up to the ASV volunteers near the doorway. He threw his arms open wide and said, “Wait until you see what I’ve got!” as he placed his camera down on the table. Kurt continued, “I just finished my roll of film today, taking pictures in the snow. You would not think there were great things to see today but there were. There really were. I can’t wait to see my pictures. I can’t wait for all of you to see my pictures.”
The volunteers quickly replied, “Kurt, we can’t wait to see them too.” And they meant it.
