    Shirley, what an angel you are. So many people avoid situations like this. I hope you never have to experience such a situation yourself, but if you do, you will understand how much what you are doing means to those on the receiving end. You are so very special. Congratulations on winning the blog candy. You have good kharma!ReplyCancel

    Congrats to you, Shirley!
    Some years back I had a friend going through a post partum depression. A very difficult time, to say the least! I do recall bringing her soups and stews (anything easy to reheat) as well as frozen rolls of cookie dough. She already had a small one at home so fresh baked cookies were a welcome gesture that didn’t require much of her time.
    She soo appreciated the extra help, as did her husband :)
    A friend is most welcome during a difficult time!ReplyCancel
