Better than Good Mail


It seems I am the recipient of a recent influx of kind gestures lately- today is no different. Michelle brought us over this bad of groceries today! It is the perfect mix of things: staples so I can make some dinners like chicken,tortillas,corn and black beans, as well as home-made Navy Bean soup which was delicious and I had for lunch. But she didn't just give us staples- she gave us all the things you want when your poor and dieting- snacks! From Crystal Light to Kettle Corn, various 100 Calorie Packs and an assortment of diet sodas. It is a delight to behold! Thank you so much Michelle- the kindness and generosity of others is such a lift to the spirits. I am so blessed to have so many sweet, thoughtful, generous people in my life. I know that my little family will always be okay because we have so many great people looking out for us. Thanks Michelle, and anyone else who has recently provided for us!

I, too, have been on the receiving end of the generosity and kindness of others more often than I feel I deserve. As we continue to wade through a brackish financial bog, I can relate to the feelings of humility and gratitude as you take a turn on the receiving end of things.

I know about receiving from others and must say it's bitter/sweet. I always want to be the one to provide for others, so it's hard to accept help or to feel like you need it. I've gotten better about this though, and now try to recognize the "life experience" in all of it so that I can have empathy for others and see opportunities to help.
Perhaps you're being groomed for a future role as Relief Society President!

Seeing that picture makes me so happy for you and the fact that you have an awesome sister. This is one reason that living so close to family is important to me Being able to give and receive help when needed without any expectations or assumptions is priceless.

Sisters are the best. And you have a particularly good one! I can't think of a better gift than food! (what are those pink discoid things in the front??? I feel like I have to have one whatever it is...)

Right now I am so incredibly jealous of the Diet Coke! I am craving it! That was so very sweet of Michelle. What a great sister!
