lorikelly Posted October 27, 2007 Report Share Posted October 27, 2007 Hi I am trying to continue a new tradition that i started last christmas in memory of my mom. i want to do something each yr to remenber her. Christams and the holidays were her favorite, this was a time when all of her 5 children came together. i realize now how important that was to her. Last yr i volunteered at a loceal soup kitchen. you can not believe how many people do not have enough money to just buy groceries. they were everyday people who worked, payed there bills but in the end could not afford food for the week. this shelter was open 7 days a week , 3 meals a day. it opened my eyes to alot. alot of people think it is only for the homeeless but you would be amazed. giving back really helped me alot and i know my mom would be proud. this yr i have decided to adopt a family . i don't have alot of extra money but if i can do with out to give to a family it will be worth it. my boys can help with this . i think my mom will be smiling. the holidays will be hard once again and since i don't have my siblings i think this will bring some comfort. Just thought i would share this with all. Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
