they didnt get to stay long, as a friend drove them in the truck. I visited with the mom a few, while men loaded all the stuff. They were very happy. Kids told me thanks and now they have a bed for each of them. Im so happy to help them.

That's a very kind thing of you to do. You don't have to hope if it will help them or not, I'm almost positive that it will, and they will appreciate it. It's great that you're able and willing to help out your family. That's something that is becoming increasingly rare in today's society. The world definitely needs more people like you. Best wishes to you and your family.

To me it sounds almost as much fun as shopping. The Lord loves a cheerful giver, and it truly does feel more blessed to give than to receive. Have a great visit with the homeless friends who no longer are homeless, because of your kind heart and the uncle as well.

Hi Maria. Have you ever seen the TV serial F.R.I.E.N.D.S I always wanted to hang out once in a similar coffee shop with friends and have interesting discussions like I did. Now I know where that coffee shop is. And also I have a friend who works there. I will bring my girlfriend along. Now we need two more... Have a nice day

That is great you have all those things to give to them. I really hope they can keep a job so they can keep a roof over their heads and not lose what you give to them. I am sure they are so blessed to have met you as well. People like you are hard to find. I feel we all have an angel out there just waiting to shower us with love. we just have to wait till they show up. Take care.

I think if you can manage it you might want to keep it. you can rent out your rooms to people who are in need of a room. good luck.

renting isnt a good idea in mexico. The landlord tenant laws are bad. Once someone rents a place its real hard to get them out.

That is nice of you to do for them. People should be more giving like that to others if they can be. Right now I'd like to give away a older TV and a older computer monitor and make some room here, cause even if the other stuff we have is very old I don't need those extras either. Good for you, I do hope they can get settled in somewhere and have a good life again. God Bless.

You are very caring, warm and generous my friend, they will be able to find all those items of great use I am sure. Plus they will be so grateful I can imagine. I am always having a big turn out and donating them to charity to help them out.

This is great news Maria. I am sure they are very thankful for all that you have done for them. All it takes is one person to help someone in need, someone to help them get their footing. What a blessing you have been to this family. It's nice you have all these extra things you are able to give them. Very sweet of you.
