As Christmas became closer and closer, I had an idea to help my friend. She is trying to raise 3 kids by herself, she has 2 jobs and volunteers on 3 soccer teams to get a discount. I admire how hard she works to make a good life for her kids. So I decided to cook a shepherd’s pie for her, for those crazy days.
I happened to mention it to a curling friend, who said why don’t we help her. Then the next curling group said the next thing. As did the hockey shinny group and the hockey daytime league team. So what has started as one meal has become this amazing hamper filled with food, toys, meals, gift cards and caring. I am overwhelmed by these people I know who are so generous and compassionate.
It is one thing to help a friend, but to help someone you do not know. Wow! thank you.
