Life can get hectic at times, pure chaos that knows no bounds. My life right now is pretty crazy. Being the mother of two, one turning 3 soon, makes it even more so. My little one is getting to where she hates the car and I don’t blame her. My 12 year old usually stays home because it’s less boring and more to do. My three year old doesn’t have that option but I usually make it up to her, in some way, even if it’s small.
Now we obviously don’t LIVE in our car. We are blessed that we have a solid roof over our head, food in our fridge and pantry, and money for the essentials. Money can be tight but our bills are paid and we are warm with full bellies. That’s more than a lot of people can say and I try to stress our blessings to my children. They’ve never been exposed to that side of humanity, loss, or desperation. But maybe they should.
I’ve been thinking…
How to help someone else and yet turn that into a lesson as well?
There are a few options.
Food donation. Charity.
But that doesn’t really enable that lesson to be taught and yet I want my children safe of course. A person never knows.
So I was thinking soup kitchens.
If anyone had any other suggestions on how me and my children can help those less fortunate while teaching them that we are indeed blessed with what we do have, please comment and let me know!
