So the week before Christmas came, and I got to work. Scott bought his regular carts of food, and I found out that he also buys toiletry items, detergent, soap, and things like that. I loved adding to the joy by baking some cakes and cookies, and buying and wrapping individual gifts for each person in the families. The night we packed up our car was such a blast.

Scott’s mom believes that no matter how much you have, there is always something to share. Even for our family, she’ll stop by the house with a bag of homegrown tomatoes or a bouquet of fresh flowers from her yard. We came home the other day to a box of hot doughnuts on the back steps. ” But I also know that we were just one of her many stops. She probably dropped off a few tomatoes for a widow down the street or took flowers to someone she just met in her neighborhood. My mother-in-law has a heart of gold, and she passed that to my husband.
