I think she is means close friends and family. They do not want a "public" type of thing. You know the jar at the checkout counter type of thing.

There has been a whole bunch of benefits for different people and things. It seems like people are not helping directly but in a more impersonal way.

Susie also said that Steve and Carol where even upset about having to have the livestock chores done by others. She thinks that they where greatly effected by having to buy the farm the way it happened. They do not want help. They want to be independent.

We will just have to see how things work out. If they need more help I will let everyone know.

One of the hardest lessons I had to learn as a Christian, was to receive God's blessings.

Explain to her that there's nothing wrong, dependent, or demeaning about accepting the well wishes and help from neighbors. Its not charity or a handout. Its friends, neighbors and family sharing and standing in the gap for each other.

Remember the good Samaritan?

Nancy, Agree with you. My FIL had to accept some help, and I never saw anything change a " hard, nosed, stubborn old German" into such a "mellow man" as that. Harold

JD Seller, When my son broke his back 2 years ago, he did not want his church to take up a collection to help with expenses. After a while, we and some of his church members convinced him that people want to help just as he had helped others before. It makes people feel good to help someone in real need. He had insurance, but much of the bills was not covered, like much of the $17000 ride to the hospital in a helicopter. People like to feel needed when someone really needs help. His coworkers with the SC Forestry Commission and friends and family all jumped in to help with his small farming operation.
Heck, even his old man, me, jumped in and sprayed 2 acres of pumpkins he had with a backpack sprayer. Richard in NW SC

JD- how about would they let us contribute to a favorite charity of theirs, in their name? It's just not right to pass this by- there are so many worthy groups needing help. I understand their reluctance, but please emphasize that some of us need worthy, worthwhile causes to help. Simply way too many scams out there- they could do a service to us that want to help. Again, thank you for all what your extended family is doing!
