"A Kind & Thoughtful Gesture" that is my "Blessing" for this Thanksgiving Holiday

A little something that was really "huge" to me yesterday. I had gone to "Wally World" to pick up a couple of things, and pick up the HUGE 22 INCH pot planter for my HUGE FERN! It had came in (I had to order it in order to even get one this time of year) so I came home, and I had that HUGE box it was in, 2 gallons of water for the pups, (I by them the filtered water or sometimes the spring water, I HATE the smell of "chlorine" in our tap water, and then I had some pipe wraps, and a bag of potting soil, and now I am OUT and did not quite have enough, even though I had THREE bags, and I still need a little bit for the fern itself...

and then a couple of things as far as groceries. So, I go out, get the potting soil from outside, and the wind is blowing like a "son of a gun"..LOL... but I got home, and as I started to get things out of the car, I heard a car pull up behind me, and thought it was the neighbors that  "kind of share" a driveway... anyway, so a woman's voice said "Maam"" and I almost jumped out of my skin, I was so busy getting things out of the car, and she said "We have some zucchini squash, some melons, and some banana's left over from the "Food Bank"....

if you would like some come back here and get what you want, well of course I did, WE eat LOTS OF FRESH FRUIT, and it is EXPENSIVE!!! I feed the pups some, they love apples, and melons, and just about all of it that I can give them that is okay for them to eat, and the zucchini, they were awesome and fresh looking, so she gave me several and I said that is plenty, but I will make bread out of some of it, and then a casserole out of some of it, and then the banana's were even "organic" which is not a real thing for me, but they were so "fresh" they were even "too green" for me to eat, and I love them on the green side... and then the cantalope looked good.


 I was so THANKFUL BECAUSE I was running LOW on fruit anyway, and the idea that she made a special trip around the neighbor offering it to those who would like some, and honestly as HIGH as groceries are now, even it just being me, because I try to buy as "healthy" as I can, my grocery bill is expensive.... so she told me "God Bless me" as I told her I was so thankful to get all of it, and I thought to myself, just a day or two ago, I got a letter in the mail from the "Meals on Wheels" folks... and I wanted to send something in, because I know that it helps LOTS of elderly people or those who can't get out of the house or don't have relatives, even if you have had a surgery and can't get out they will deliver you a hot meal...

but I couldn't "afford" the donation they asked for so I sent about half of what they were wanting, and put a note in there, that I always wanted to try and support them, but me being alone and living off my social security, I wanted to give what I could to help... so I felt like although it was not as much as I wished I could have given, that it almost "came back around to me" from the food bank and that kind lady who stopped by to ask if I wanted some... we STILL have those who are "amazing" in this nation... although we must deal with so many "mean people" we have those that give their all to help, and for me that was the best 'THANKSGIVING" BLESSING I could have gotten.....
