I have a friend who is 27 weeks pregnant. Her fiancé left her and she lives with her dad (who is supporting her fully under the condition that she goes back to college). Her dad is not able to financially support her AND the baby, but has offered to help when he can. She will live there for free with HER needs taken care of, while BD covers the needs of their child. I have a 16 month old DS and we has huge baby shower (that my mother and sister threw for me). We have lots of clothes, toys, shoes, sheets, etc that have never been or have been lightly used. I am giving her all these "extra" things to help her get started with her new baby and raising him on her own.
I'm not posting this to toot my own horn, only to ask others to do something similar. If you have a friend in need who doesn't ask anything of you, and who helping doesn't create a loss for you, help them.
I know, with helping her, if my family and I are ever in need, someone some place will help us.
A friend said to me last week, "imagine if all we had were the people and things we were grateful for the day before." It really made me think. Appreciate what you have and do unto others :)
