After hubby took a swan dive off the roof, so many of our family and friends really rallied together and were such a support to us! Even the offer to help was greatly appreciated. Our neighbor blew the leaves in our front year. Our other neighbor took our trash out and in that week (something JR does, which i could have easily done but it was a great help). Mother in law watched Lil Rev, came to the emergency room the day of the accident and stayed with me at the hospital during hubby's surgery. Our friend took Lil Rev trick or treating on the glorious surgery day - aka Halloween. Friends came by to check out our hearing/air system, father in law drove the 2 hrs drive to visit hubby, and on and on and on. It was heart warming to have so much support  so i  was inspired to give everyone a little sweet token of appreciation. I searched and found this great recipe for pumpkin spice oatmeal cookies, and after a few personal touches i made dozens and dozens of cookies for everyone. I had seen a great idea on Pinterest (gasp, i know - rare!) for making personal goodie bags so i bought cellophane bags, personalized each thank you card,  and handed them out to our loved ones. They were all well received and this will not be the last time for these little goodie bags!
