Spoonful Of Comfort Review and Giveaway Us Only Ends 6/30

The story behind why Spoonful Of Comfort was born...

In October 2007, I received the phone call from my mother that she had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
I was shocked, scared and panicked. The hardest part about hearing the news, was that she lived in New Brunswick Canada and I lived in Florida. More difficult still, I had just returned the day before from a trip visiting her. With two young children in school, I couldn't just turn around and go back.
I was so upset and felt helpless being so far away. I needed to "Do Something". I looked into sending flowers or fruit, but nothing seemed appropriate. I wanted to show her how much I cared, and in some way comfort her.
I immediately thought of Chicken soup - it's what she (like many mothers) used to make to comfort me. And the idea for Spoonful of Comfort was born.
Just six weeks later, I lost my mother.
During her final weeks she got lots of soup and other comforts from many of her 11 siblings and close friends. She never had the opportunity to try my soup.
However, in her honor, it is my goal to help others with sick loved ones.  It is my promise to make and deliver a Spoonful of Comfort to your loved ones with as much care as if I were sending it to my own mother. They'll feel better and so will you.  Whether you have an ailing mother, a child away at college with the flu, or a grandchild with an ear infection, Spoonful of Comfort can help you show that you care.

Such a sad story, but such a wonderful idea... at the same time. Because I to lost a parent with very little warning,  ( RIP Daddy) I know that longing to want to offer comfort for them as they are ailing.

Now onto the Soup, Wow was it great, I had a busy weekend, that resulted in me being a little under the weather so it was nice to be able to have a comfort food the was super easy to make, and was still wonderful.

My kids are super picky and they were even asking for second servings of the Spoonful of Comfort. I love the ideas behind the care packages to. The food is Yummy, and the feeling if knowing someone cares, makes it that much better. Soo an old friend having a baby, Someone you love sick? Send a spoonful of comfort today.
