Generosity

I am continually amazed at the generosity of people in my life. I am so very grateful for giving spirits!

I was sliding some photos into an album of Samuel's first months of life and saw pictures I had taken of all the things people gave to us or let us use when he unexpectedly arrived in our home. We had car loads of stuff!

Today I find myself in the same boat. I am in need of a double stroller, a dresser to hold clothes for two kids (we are currently using a borrowed changing table from my parent's neighbors that they gave us last October) and a breast pump.

Friends are letting me use their double stroller and pump, saving us hundreds of dollars. I am so grateful!!

People have given us baby food when their kids no longer were eating it. People have given us clothes by the bags and boxes (for both Samuel and baby girl to be). We were able to buy a second crib for just $35 from a family that we know - what a blessing! At just 11 months Samuel will not be ready for a big boy bed :)

We feel so blessed as God continually provides in unexpected ways. And I am continually grateful at the incredible generosity of people in my life...and people I don't even know!
