My mom has been criticized for making and donating over 2000 masks over the past year. Most critics respond with something along the lines that the materials cost too much to just give them away. In reality she purchased very little as she picked from her stash of fabric, I cleared out some of mine and the local health department and many friends donated and shared supplies.
My mom also crocheted some Easter chicks that hold a plastic egg for the kids in my daughter's class and I'm filling them with a few treats. So now the question is why would I provide something for her class when she is currently being schooled remotely? Because I guess maybe I'm a bit like my mom. Maybe some of those kids come from bad situations and it will bring a bit of happiness to their day. Maybe I just feel like it.

emmsmommy, I suspect that people who criticize other's generosity aren't people who are generous themselves, and putting someone else down may relieve them of their guilt, by denigrating the act of giving or those who engage in it. JMHO.

Maybe that’s it. I’m just surprised at how judgmental and petty people have become.
Mumsey, I tried a memory foam pillow years ago and while it was comfortable, it was also the hottest pillow I've slept on. I may do some browsing online as I feel certain the design has evolved over the years. I did pull my old pillow from the pile destined for tomorrow's garbage and finished out the night with it. I'm not saying it's old, but when I was putting the pillow case on last time, my hand went through the fabric. Now I'm thinking of patching it up, making a new cover and getting another year or two out of it. I guess in some ways I can relate to your dad.

emmsmommy, I got a couple of those "My Pillows" on sale. Wouldn't pay the full price, for them, but they are comfortable and don't give me any trouble. Got two of different firmness types (can't find firmnesses in the dictionary). Like that they are American made.
