I must be an ENABLER too as this morning I mailed not 1 but 2 boxes to my family.

 

In the boxes were tp, hand sanitizer, paper towels and foods they can't find such as pb, mayo, ketchup, baby food, baby wipes & other things I thought they might need,  Luckily they are close enough to each other to stop by and go through and share.

 

Some don't realize how bad it is in NY and NJ/PA.  Then again, I wonder where our Governor of FL is ... since there have been no updates (to my knowledge) since his news conference on Saturday afternoon.

 

I don't care what the costs are to mail these if I have them/can find them and they need them ... that's what family is for!!!  I also donated lots of stuff to our St. Vincent DePaul this morning -- mostly food as food pantries here are closed & we could never eat all that is in my pantries.  One of the things I said I was going to stop doing "BOGOs"but now I'm glad I didn't!

I disagree @Kachina624 , the country has turned extremely selfish. I would do the same thing for a child of mine.


@JaneMarple    I'd say it was the "child" who was selfish and inconsiderate.  TP seems to appear for those who search diligently for it, or who are lucky.

I want to say NO one is lazy during the times in PA/NJ/NY at this time.  In fact, my sons MIL died on Friday suddenly and I won't tell you what a "nightmare" this has been - 1) DIL to lose your Mother and 2) not be able to get straight answer about funeral arrangements Smiley Sad

 

Please do NOT judge others during this time- I'm sure you would do the same!!!

 

And Kachina624 I just saw your post - so sorry about your loss.  Therefore, I know you for sure would do it!!!
