We Are So Blessed!

My family has had a pretty expensive couple of year's medically, but I still feel so blessed. I recently heard about a young single mother with three children. She has a four year old, a 2 year old, and a 1 year old. The one year old was born with half a heart. It broke my heart to hear about her situation. A doctor from Mississippi volunteered to fly her and her sick baby to have his surgery. I was told about this family by someone asking me for clothes, but my girls' sizes didn't match what the young mother needed.
Mattie Claire and I made a WalMart run today and bought these three kids Easter baskets. We got each child an outfit, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bubbles, panties... I tried to get things the kids would enjoy, but the mom would appreciate. Thank you to my favorite retired teacher :-) for helping buy the stuff. I have shared this story to ask that if any of my local followers would like to add a little goodie to the baskets just give me a call. I will probably send them to her at the end of this week.


  1. What a WONDERFUL and kind idea!! I wish I would have known! I was just at the Dollar Store yesterday!

  2. Where I live, a group has started a program to make Easter baskets for the needy. Sass & I bought tons of stuff at the $ store to donate. I love doing stuff like this.
