Christina was a grandmother who grew up in Alabama and found herself spending her retirement years in Silver City. Her life changed after she was diagnosed with dementia.
No longer able to work, and unable to rely on her meager disability check to cover her bills, she turned to the Silver City Gospel Mission Food Pantry for help.
She said …
It’s really hard, you know when I only draw $798 a month and I have my granddaughter who depends on me. I just thank God that there are people who help people like me who need help. It it wouldn’t have been for them we wouldn’t have enough food.
Christina passed away this last year and her granddaughter went to stay with distant relatives back in Alabama. I didn’t know her that well, but always thought that I would talk to her a little more one of these days.
Last night I came across some words of wisdom that bear repeating.
I wish I had taken the time to know Christina better, but I am glad we were able to help her.
Our relationships with people matter. Our relationship with God matters. Whenever I think about Christina, it reminds me that I need to take the time to try and get both of these relationships right.
