When my husband lost his job in November right before Thanksgiving, we were scared and wondering how we would survive. About a week after that a box arrived via UPS, it weighed a ton.
"Love you all and God Bless. I hope you enjoy the ham as much as we do.” Packed and taped and nested in those white packing peanuts was an embroidered pillowcase. Inside was a country ham.
The ham was sent from Helen and G, they live on a piece of property with no running water. G told me once, " I get 231.00 a month from social security, not bad for someone with a fourth grade education." This is a story of survival, theirs and with a little help from them, ours.
