A Time to Give - Gifts that Save


Hello and welcome to my weekly post of A Time to Give. A Time to Give is hosted by Jen at Saving and Giving. Head on over to participate in this post to share and read how others give or recieve during the holiday season.
This week I want to share how there are so many people who are willing to give during this holiday season. Last year it was a difficult time (and still is) for us because my husband had just got laid off from his job and his father was also severely ill. To top it off I was a few months pregnant. We had nothing for Christmas. I did not feel like shopping, baking, cooking, nothing. A friend from CafeMom shared this great website, WishUponA Hero and I posted what was happening in our life and I recieved many cards of encouragement and gifts for my 4 year old daughter. It did become a nice and thoughtful Christmas for us. We ended up traveling to my father-in-laws house the day after Christmas because he was taken to the hospitals Critical Care Unit. We all came together as a family and thanks to the beautiful cards I received I was able to stay strong for my husband. My father-in-law past on on Janurary 5th, 2009.
Now that almost a year has past I am much stronger and deal with hard times a bit better now. I think about those people and now! Thank you.
And remember that now is the perfect time to give and send cards to those who need it the most. How can you find these people? There are many website, you can contact your local salvation army, food bank and even the workforce centers in your area. Website that help are wishuponahero and more!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
