We attended the baby shower a couple of weeks ago and though we did not stay for the opening of all the gifts it was evident that her friends had really blessed these first time parents and the coming child.
Though both parents are working they wanted to be prepared for the upcoming expenses, needs, and diapers. We bought more than we needed just to be part of the effort.
Today we spent some time in the garage going through our own stack of stuff and made a designated pile to give to them to add to the sale items for the next day of the sale which might be coordinated by the husband on a day he is not working or even after the baby is born.
There was something just good about the experience.
- Young parents doing what they can to provide for their family.
- Getting rid of unneeded items at low prices so that others could benefit from them.
- A community supporting these efforts just by participating.
