On the tenth day of Christmas Aloha, I committed to providing dinners for a "meal train."
I recently found out that one of the local moms (from our youth football days) fell outside her home earlier this month, breaking her elbow, damaging her ulnar nerve, and rendering her arm useless. Being a single mom is challenging enough. But, being injured, in pain, and unable to move - never mind cook hot meals for your kids - and enjoy the holiday season as planned is overwhelming.
Thankfully, her friends created a meal train where people can sign up online to cook or buy them dinner on selected nights.
So, on the tenth day of Christmas Aloha, I signed up! This mom and her daughter have volunteered to help me in my work with the elderly many times. So, I was more than happy to help her in her time of need.
When a fellow mom falls, step up to help out because when we lift each other up, we all rise! Please check on your single mom friends. It takes a village to care for children and moms need love and support, too!
*For the 12 days of Christmas Aloha, I'm using the 12 days before Christmas to inspire people to be more loving, kind, and compassionate with themselves and each other. Practicing aloha optimizes your mental health by cultivating a positive mindset and building self-worth, self-esteem, courage, and confidence!
