Fresh Vegetables, fresh fruit, bread, dairy and more. This is for everyone who wants it, there is plenty and we will not run out! The fresh food needs to be eaten soon, please help us so it does not have to be thrown away in the garbage.
Food comes from various places including school districts, restaurants, and food distributors, closed community food shelves. Over 5000 car loads went out at Serenity Village Community Church. Restocking is complete.
This is a drive through event, they will load it into your trunk or car. You can pick up for multiple families.

How to keep things light and maybe even fun
This weekend was the first time my family and I took a mental break from Covid 19, and what that meant for us was doing absolutely nothing but sleeping, being lazy, eating sweets, watching movies and laughing together. For the time being it was easy to forget isolation and reality outside of our walls. But it was also a good reminder that no matter how hard this is there are always reasons to be happy.
How are you all doing? Are you finding new ways to connect or develop new traditions that you may continue once this is all done?
Since I didn't get a chance to post anything here this weekend I need to play catch up as the list of great resources is piling up.

Thank you for those of you who are visiting the site and letting me know that RSS feed button is not working. RSS allows you to sign up for updates/ new posts.
So I dug into it. If you are signing up with your work email (probably best) you need to do it manually in outlook. The RSS feed folder is separate from you inbox so you won't be bombarded with new post notifications and can check them out when you feel like it.
Under Outlook's side bar you should have a folder called RSS Subscriptions (image on the left)
Right click on it and add this address http://www.obpdmfamily.com/2/feed and Add
The The RSS Feed folder will then have the OBPDM Family folder, which will hold any new post notification 1 day.
However the more I think about it I think it means a lot more than just the amount of time it takes to run each. I attempted running.... once… a mile… long story short, it wasn’t for me.
What I learned about running though was very important. I realized that instant gratification wasn’t an option. There was this plan I was supposed to have and follow (walk then run in increments, 3-5 times a week). It required training, both physical and mental. Downhill running was easy, but uphill was a battle. Roadblocks were inevitable! My legs stopped working and I needed time to recover.
I felt so many highs and lows about something so seemingly easy yet so freaking hard to accomplish.
But again, nothing is easy, especially now.
What I do know, the process of reflection, having patience and a will to train new muscles will help us push through dark times and make us resilient in areas of life we didn’t expect. Right?
