  1. Carrie,

    One of the best things someone can do to help others who are struggling with an illness or many other things is to take them a meal. I have taken and have received many meals from other over my lifetime. I cannot tell you how helpful it was to have a hot meal when my life was turned upside down. An example of this is both times Caleb was in the hospital for 3 months each time. Our church, neighbors, and friends brought us meals. It was truly a blessings.
    Many thanks for sharing this great idea.
