I was supposed to have a garage sale today. But of course the day I get up EARLY it rains and thunders. What do you know?
So my husband and I went to the other side of town, which was ok and did some garage sale shopping. Found a beautiful Mexican blanket (a soft one that has been broken in but still in good shape) and 2 glass containers (great for storing bulk food).
On the way home, decided to stop by one of our stores that has been throwing tons of food away. Last night found a case of canned biscuits and a brand new container of grape juice. Today we found over 3 dozen bags of shredded cheese, several bottles of orange juice and 2 cans of tomato sauce.
We asked our neighbors to come over and help themselves. A family of five takes a lot of money to feed, no matter how much help you get. With the price of groceries going through the roof, we could all use a little help. Momma and Daddy was thrilled with the stash. They brought over their baby girl and I got to hold her a while. She’s a little angel.
She has a older daughter, but still in grade school. We had given her a skirt that we’d found (brand new). It fit her to a T. She came over after school the other night with the skirt on. Paired with a green shirt and green headband. She loved her skirt and grinned ear to ear when we told her how cute she was. It is very gratifying to help those who need it and it really doesn’t take a lot to be kind to someone.
