Hey guys, welcome to my blog. I finally edited and uploaded the cooking serving video from our FOOD DRIVE/DISTRIBUTION. I'm so thankful for all of the nice comments thus far and nice suggestions for future food drives from some of my amazing subbies. Anyways, I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to my father in-law; Big Daddy, for being such a kind soul in helping me to grill and providing great counsel during this whole process. He is amazing y'all! When I first had the DREAM to be a blessing a 100 homeless people, I thought it was crazy. For someone who doesn't have a job that pays enough to get a place, to think about doing something like this, completely out of pocket, I thought that I had gone CRAZY! But you know, crazy people CHANGE the world! I love this quote that says; "You don't have to be GREAT to start, you only have to START to be GREAT!" That's exactly what I did, with the help of my husband and family. The look of expectation and joy in those men and women's faces after being served, made it all worth it. Now we are already planning our next food drive to feed double the number but we are going to need a LOT OF HELP! As you will see in the video, we lacked help and it went a little out of control but GOD was looking out for us. If you read this and would like to help either by donating or being a volunteer, visit Gofundme.com/MaryamsJoyfulLifeFundraiser.com and teespring.com/maryamshumatesdreambigcampaign. Thank you in advance. I believe everyone of us has it in us to change the world. Join me and let's change the world; one person at a time.
