I made him a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich

Today I was on my way home for lunch and saw a man and his dog standing on the corner holding a sign that said, homeless, hungry and disabled. It was a large sign and very colorful too. Most of the time when I see these people begging for money I feel that are out there to get rich and have all they need back home in there nice large mansion along with there sports cars and other laberish toys, but today when I saw this man and his dog I had a feeling that this man was really in need. Then I had a thought to go home and put some items in a bag and take back to him. I went home and found a reusable shopping bag and filled it with a tooth brush, toothpaste, hand whipes, clean socks (thank you Shane for giving away your newly purcased socks), a blanket, homemade cookies, package of applesauce, big bag of unopened chips, dog food (for the dog of course, thank you Jack) 3 dollar bills and I made him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then I headed back to the corner he was standing on, rolled down my window and he came right over. I handed him the bag and he reached in and said, thank you very much mam and I said, you are welcome. As I drove away I had a good feeling in my heart. It wasn't much, but I hope that others saw this man receive something and think that they to can help where needed.

Happy Easter 2010

Shane and I were in Portland this weekend for Easter. It was nice to be able to enjoy the day with family, Easter treats and wonderful talks from General Conference. What a special day to have both Eater and Conference on the same day. The kids were fun and also it was Jack's first Easter so he had fun as well playing with the kids and eating his Easter treats.
