My day started out like so many,

I had a couple of errands to run, and then a quick-lunch with a close friend. I went into Walmart to get a few groceries for my mom. I ran across the school supply isle.Seeing the supplies brough back memories of not only buying clothes and backpack items,but I also could not afford them. I was raising my son as a single parent after my husband died from complications of his disease. I was mother,father and sole provider for my family of two. I had a choice for a few years, buy groceries or Levi’s school clothes and  I remember how I felt when my parents had to help me. As Levi entered middle school, my finances increases where I could buy the endless back-to school need. (note,it is interesting what a young pre-teen deems needed) 

I remember looking at the loose school supplies up and down the isles. I noticed a few put together clear plastic bags with basic supplies in them. I picked up a few and bought them for my son Levi’s honor who died in a tragic car accident in 2007. I remember him going to his church and helping put back packs together for kids to come a pick the one they wanted. I wanted to pay forward what my parents did for me a few short years ago.
