Receive with gratitude, but give with love.

My grandmother passed away earlier this year. She was a very important person in my life who was very passionate about cooking and making sure people were well fed. She always cooked for others with a great deal of love and I have many fond memories of her.

In honor of what would have been her 102nd birthday today, I went out to give meals to those less fortunate during my vacation in India. Even though she is no longer physically on this earth, I know this would have made her very happy.

Teach your children by example. By showing them ways to give to those who are less fortunate, they will develop a deeper understanding for the many blessings they have.

Merry Christmas!

  1. Such a wonderful post. It truly is so important to be aware and mindful of those less fortunate than ourselves. It is especially heartbreaking to see young children in difficult circumstances. Kudos to you for such a wonderful way to not only remember your grandmother but to truly lead by example for your own girls! Happy Holidays!
