Giving With Thanks


This year has brought me many blessings. It’s the second year without mami so I’m afraid there’s still some awkwardness as we adjust to this new normal. The Central Florida Latinas and I have had many great things happen this year. Primarily, the fact that we came together to form not just a circle of friendship but also a group that will make a positive impact on the community.  We want to give back as an offering of thanks for all of the blessings that this year has brought us.

Today we headed over to Better Life Worship Center. It is one the fastest growing churches in Central Florida and they are continuing their tradition of feeding needy families in the community. Every 3rd Tuesday of the month, Better Life Worship Center has a food pantry that is open for all families so they can receive free groceries.

This week they’re doing a little more. Not only are they providing groceries from their pantry but they had a very special Thanksgiving lunch. As an extra special blessing, they are also providing the needy families with groceries to prepare a Thanksgiving meal at home. And we lucky enough to be there for them to help.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks in our group with illnesses (children, moms, ourselves, etc). But we are EXTRA grateful for the Ford Southeast team who provided us with a $300 gift card in order to help the church stock up on their pantry during this time of the year.

We have lots to be thankful for but being able to help others during their time of need is one of the biggest blessings we could’ve received. Special thanks to Ford Southeast for standing with us as we help our community.

What are you thankful for this season?
