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.
