Helping out young Families
Monday, January 17, 2011
It's Monday, a new week, and it has snowed all day---I can't even see across the lake. Everything is white outside. Ive shovelled off the deck and the walkway and the driveway several times, and it's all snowed in again. The 2 Germans (as in German Shepherds) love the snow and chase each other all over in it. It's beautiful to watch them run.
This morning a young girl emailed me about her separation from her husband and how hard it is for her, with 2 little preschoolers. She has to work, and so far is not receiving child support. I offered to babysit when she is stuck for a sitter---gratis---kind of like a surrogate Grandmother--- thought that is the least I could do.
It made me realize how fortunate I am , to have always been able to stay at home with my own children, as they were growing up--something , that my own children are not priviledged enough to do , in to-day's world.
