Has your family done any volunteer work together?  I hope when the kids get a little older we could do something to help others.

We help some homeless men. We had 3 others we knew and helped that were murdered  almost 5 months ago. We held a vigil for them and raised money for their funerals.We also help get donations for a dog rescue and once a month we visit a local nursing home and pass out cookies.

You are such a giving person.  I know from the other groups you do so much to benefit others.  I hope your kids enjoy helping you with all of the work you do.  I think it is such a valuable experience to give to our kids.

Just seeing the pics always cheers up my day.  With my dad being in and out of nursing homes I so appreciate the work that you do.

Yep. We helped a lot when our church was being built. We've also volunteered individually before.

Awwww..... Im sorry about your dad. My Mom was in one and it wasnt good. I had the state called in on them and changes were made. There was a lot of verbal abuse and saw some physical as well.Its sad that it happens.My Mom was in an alzehiemers ward so it was very hard b/c they cant defend themselves in any way.I raise money now for alzheimers and we do the walk. I pray they find a cure
