A friend told me an incident she recently experienced: one of her neighbors came over to borrow sanity napkins (for her 15-year old daughter) and flour, eggs and salmon for her family as they had already sent $300 to a church that feeds the children of illegal immigrants and $300 more to a foundation for people living in the Gaza Strip. My friend gave her the items but not before telling the neighbor that she should have thought of her own family before sending all their money off to charity. She says the neighbor went off angry. What do you think of the neighbor's parenting priorities?

omg, I did! I will go edit and spell correctly before Freud haunts me, lol! But I like your take on it; thank you for sharing!
Beth..LOL! Freudian slip or whatever,.you may have just created an incredibly new & appropriate name for those awful things!! I mean, we girls know all the digs sent our way about our attitude at that time of the month! We plead INSANITY? LOL
Indeed! Someone should have had some sanity, Even if she did contribute to good "causes"-- we know that a lot of them, especially the 'popular' current ones-- are a scam. Donations rarely reach the ones in need.
Well gosh darnit, I'm not getting an "edit" option.
I'm actually glad you couldn't change it! That typo in terms of the gist of your question..is going to go down in Hub History!! LMAO. Stands to reason we can't edit questions.....that could screw up all the answers!! You crack me up!!! LOL
dashingscorpio, I think you may be right there.
fpherj48 - I totally agree with your assessment. This sounds like a scam to support a drug, alcohol, or gambling problem. Very few living humans are stupid enough to give all their money to charity and not care for their family.
Old Poolman...Really..I know! How stupid can some people be? This BS story makes no sense at all. There used to be an old lady around here who went begging to neighbors. Her dghter wound up calling all of us & told us she was a serious gambler!
I'm not against giving to charity and I do it myself from time to time, but at this point that person is just showing herself to be irresponsible. Another spiritual laws talks about providing for your own house.
Sri T, I've heard that too. But what is the spiritual law about making your own kids do without food because you've spent all your money to feed the children of others? Just curious.
The Universe supplies the needs in it's own way and time. One has to be intuitive and a receiver to recognize the signs for the blessings.
Express10, my first reaction is to think that way. But I'm a big softie at times and know my friend worries about the neighbor's kids. From what I hear the neighbor and her husband tend to spend a lot on popular causes.
Agreed. However, without taking care of their needs, they are showing a lack of planning and control. They need to put these things into practice & get a dose of pride so they don't go begging for things they should be taking care of themselves.
A noble way to live.
