Recently, I shared a picture of our almost-empty freezer on my Facebook page, citing LMLP (Long Month, Late Pay) as the culprit for its sparse contents. I initially meant it to be a joke, and captioned it with “Cereal for dinner!” But what happened next wasn’t funny.
So many of my readers admitted that they struggle, much more so than I, with putting food on the table. It’s not a matter of LMLP, it’s a matter of food, period. I can’t tell you how that hurt my heart.
Out of the blue, a lovely lady named Alice, a writer for Babble, contacted me and asked to do a piece based on my Facebook status. I was hesitant because I certainly didn’t want to lead anyone to believe that my freezer is always bare, or that my kids are hungry. It’s not, they’re not; we are fortunate in that mine and my husband’s profession provide for us. BUT I realized the opportunity I had to raise awareness and, hopefully, help.
