I've shipped so many packages since we moved that I'm on a first-name basis with our mail carrier. Well, at least I could be, he's told me his first name--twice. I think it has an "r" in it. I am so terrible with details, I knew I should have written it down.
Anyhow, I'm looking forward to asking my kids to carry food to the mailbox to help fill his delivery truck this Saturday in honor of Mother's Day. Many years ago I was on the receiving end of the donated food and it still brings tears to my eyes when I think about it. I think learning to give when needed is one of the best presents any child can give a parent. (Kids, if you're reading this, I like flowers, too--but canned food first please!)
