What's on your heart and mind today?

I'm grateful to be a Vegan...sometimes I feel like I've tapped into the Holy Grail, as I marvel at all of the ways Vegan food can be prepared! :-)

What's on your heart and mind today?

I'm grateful for time with God; we are on our Sabbath and I didn't get as much time to help others the way I usually do before the start of Sabbath, so here I am trying to help. I'd encourage others today to pull close to their families; help them to understand that Christmas is about the gift we have in Jesus, not material things. Economics are tight for most people right now, but Christmas doesn't have to be a disappointment if we focus on what we have in each other and what we have in Jesus. I'm grateful to "just be" and appreciate what God had already given us. There is no material gift on earth that can hold a candle to that. Grateful for God's love...and for not giving up on us.

All About The Positive Mommy

 in response to tlm1987...   

Good Evening, Tiffany!

Wow! You're close, Lady, so let me jump right in. I know what it is to need help and there are several organizations in your area that may be able to help you with things for your child and new baby. I was thinking specifically of the Pro-Life Care Centers in your area, as they help moms with diapers, car seats, strollers, baby clothes...pretty much anything you need for your little ones. Here is a pdf of all of the centers in and around your area:

http://www.sclife.org/ProlifeagenciesinSC/ProLifeAgenciesinSC.pdf

There are at least two organizations in the Charlotte, NC area. Check that out and give those organizations a call to see what services they can offer you.

Also, there's something there called Operation Christmas Child. Check to see what they do for Christmas...their contact information is:

Operation Christmas Child

(704) 366-3269 7100

Forest Point Blvd

Charlotte, NC 28217

I think your local "Toys for Tots" program is still taking applications. Contact for them in your area is:

Toys For Tots

(704) 548-0210 9501

David Taylor Dr

Charlotte, NC 28262

There's also the Salvation Army's Operation Holiday. I believe they said they will take applications until the 15th of December. Contact information for your area Salvation Army Command Center is:

Salvation Army

4335 Stuart Andrew Blvd.Ste 120

CHARLOTTE, NC 28217

Contact: Major Todd Hawks

Tel: 704.716.1769

Finally, have you considered checking with your state family and children services to see if they have a program that will help you stay with your child for the first year? Many state aid programs are helping new moms do this by providing a grant that will enable them to bond with their child, while they prepare to re-enter the workforce. Check with the worker you have to see if they can help you in that manner. Also, check their daycare grant services and their "take your child to work" programs. Many states are helping moms by having a daycare on worksites (if you are working for the state family and children services organization).

Finally, I am a big advocate of www.freecycle.org because the organization helps keep things out of the landfill, while helping people acquire or get rid of, things they want and need. Go to that site and enter your location to find the recyclers in your area. There is ALWAYS somebody with baby and child stuff they want to give away. You can usually find other great things on freecycle as well! Some people have received computers, dressers, pets, dvd's, cars, etc....all from people who've either upgraded or downsized.

I will be praying for you and please let me know how these resources work out for you!

Congrats on your new baby!

PositiveMommy! :-)
