Helping Others During this Tough Time Helped Us

It was the 3rd month memorial on December 26th, 2016  of my husband's passing. In my husband's memory, I had planned to bring together more of my family and friends to share this December, a little bit of kindness and gratitude. I made a list of some basic groceries that we will need to fill up 30 Boxes.

In Honor of My Late Husband

Today was my husbands 2 month memorial and the family came over to help me. We cooked a pot of food to feed 30 random needy souls. Blessings all around.

Each person did some part of the work, fetching the fresh bread from the store, adding a packet of cookies, dishing up, marking the containers, and finally splitting up to cover 3 different areas. These activities helped ease the heartache of my husbands loss a little. The blessings from the recipients of the food was precious, my husband was surely smiling down at us with pride and peace.
