A Time to Reap

Happy first day of autumn!
We have such beautiful weather this week
to help us make the shift into the season.
It's harvest time, so this month's care bags
include some fruit and grains. 
We packed a little applesauce
with some Nutri-Grain Bars,

 and popped in some baked Goldfish crackers.
Simple and YUMMY!!!
I started handing out the bags yesterday.
Today, one patient said...
"Thanks so much for the treats. 
That bag of Goldfish crackers was the perfect thing
to munch on during chemo today!"
The spouse of another patient said...
"My husband hasn't been eating much, but I want you to know he was really excited about the treats.  He ate all the applesauce, the whole Nutri-Grain bar and half the bag of Goldfish crackers when we got home. 
I couldn't believe it!"
Another one said...
"I ate the Goldfish during the Bears game
and then had the Nutri-Grain bar and applesauce for breakfast this morning."
Simple acts of kindness go a long way
when someone isn't feeling well.
Thanks to YOU we can make this happen.
Sow a thought and you reap an action;
sow an act and you reap a habit;
sow a habit and you reap a character;
sow a character and you reap a destiny.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson -
