Tuesday Ramblings

I am so blessed with the love I receive from all of you!!! Your love and concern has touched me and my husband so deeply. I will be updating you all on Friday.

As you know I volunteer in our local food pantry. We are seeing so many first time clients. They keep telling us the economy is recovering. I do not see this. Each time I go the buy food for myself or the pantry it is higher. These people are so embarrassed having to ask for help for themselves some of them are the ones who have always helped others. I truly believe in the old sage until you walk a mile in some one shoes. That is the only way we can know how these hurting people are really feeling.

Our local school system is out this week due to the flu. It seems so early for it to be so bad.

I will post and let you know what is happening on Friday. Have a great tomorrow!!!!

Hi Dear Mary:
We are in a bit of pickle and the economy is NOT getting any better.
How nice to work at the food bank. Where do you find the time?
The flu is hitting a lot of the schools out here too. I get my flu shot next month.
Take care
hugs

It IS such a tough time! We try to collect food for our local food bank but it never seems to be enough. The need is so great!!!

haha!! mary.. were you thinking I was nuts and wondering what the heck I was talking about when I asked about the kids craft nights?? the wires in my brain must have cross fired at that moment. I was thinking of Catian, shes the one that has all the kids over for crafts.. but you both have that same sweet loving spirit and I just got confused for a moment!
hugs!
