And it's Friday again! Time to look back on the blessings of the past week and share them here. Thanks to our host Susanne for reminding us each week. We often do need to take a step back and realise how fortunate we are.
1) Christmas hampers all packed and delivered to the beneficiaries of the Food bank. I helped out last Saturday with packing the final items into hampers then Hubby and I delivered 3 of them. I was really pleased to see the amount of food that we were able to provide to people but saddened to see how many people were going to be on their own for Christmas dinner - opting for a Ready Meal rather that any sort of joint. The hampers also had a lot of treats in them as well though so hopefully they will have given some enjoyment to all our beneficiaries. It was a lovely atmosphere amongst the volunteers while we were preparing the hampers and I'm glad to have been a part of it.
2) Christmas with all the family here. Our eldest son and his family had been here since Thursday 21st but our other son and our daughter and all their families were here for Christmas Day. 14 of us in total.
I was up to midnight the night before getting everything prepped. And once I'd worked out my timetable I was able to go to bed not feeling stressed.
