I've always known that I'm truly blessed to have a great family and great friends. It is so evident in times like this, though. In the short time since we've shared with only a small group of close family and friends that my husband lost his job, we've received emails and calls of encouragement, a $25 gift card for gas, garden fresh tomatoes, some school supplies for my daughter, and a few other things.
A friend who is in a much tougher financial situation than we are offered to provide us with some groceries. How sweet and thoughtful is that?
Right now, we're actually ok financially. We will have to re-adjust our budget, but we will be able to meet our needs and already have plenty of our wants. It's not so much the actual items that have been given to us during this unexpected difficult time that means so much, but the love that motivates these gifts.
We are truly blessed.
