The rambling thoughts and prayers of an abundantly blessed mother of 10...usually typed quickly and late at night
Favorite "Meditation of My Heart"
Call unto me,
and I will answer thee,
and shew thee great and mighty things,
which thou knowest not. --Jeremiah 33:3 KJV

I do an aweful job blogging the "stuff" that falls out of heaven and into our home just when we need it and I need to get better at documenting it because the volume of "stuff" is simply....unbelieveable. This week we were given 11 cases of pediasure through a friend of a former William Woods University student. We usually use 150 cans a month and I have been paying $50 per case....so yes, we were given $550 worth of Pediasure, which will last us two months! BIG thank you to my NEW favorite former student and her daughters who even delivered it! Plus this week, we were given 18 quarts of lactose free milk from a friend of my mom.
I went grocery shopping last night and spent $695.60 (and I forgot hot dog buns)! So far with grocery prices on the rise, I've been able to hold to our budgeted $1000 per month, but even with coupons and using price matches, it couldn't be done without the "stuff" that finds its way to bless us and our home.
