So this church came to my apartments to help with thanksgiving dinner, Suzanne White Roberts, the boys and I walked over to the community center, there was singing and it was a really cool little set up. I got a 16lb turkey, stuffing, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes and a red velvet cake mix with butter cream icing. Also, they did a raffle and I won a $15 gift card to Frischs. Feeling pretty blessed today. I think the boys and I may be going to church in the morning. 🙂
What a great thing communities do for their own. I was there to witness the testimony of God, grace, and humanity.
I have never been a part of something like this before. It was wonderful to see people go out of their way, that don’t have to, to make sure others have a wonderful holiday. Just seeing this makes my Thanksgiving more meaningful. I am so thankful for these kind people for seeing that people in need have a wonderful dinner.
The young lady that shared this story to social media is a recovering addict. I have seen her go from deaths door to tears of graciousness in a record amount of time. She may not be rich in monetary means but she is rich with the blessings God has in store for her. She has turned her life around, got custody of her two beautiful boys back and works a full time job. She doesn’t own a car, when need be she will walk those boys to daycare,(where she has to cut through the woods on a trail due to location and no sidewalks), so she can catch a bus to get to work. If that isn’t determination, I don’t know what is. I am proud to call her my daughter. So to see people come and give her hope is something I am truly thankful for.
I know we would like to believe that poverty in our great nation doesn’t exist, but it does. Please keep this in mind, if there is anything you can do for anyone, please do. You will be truly rewarded in ways you can’t imagine.
