So I was talking with mfranti from FMH earlier today, and our conversation turned to compassionate service. In fact, two questions arose from our conversation:
- Does the Relief Society provide meals when a husband comes home from the hospital?
- Why does the Relief Society bring over meals to a new mother if there is an able husband in the home?
For example, with our youngest, I took a week off from work. While Mary bonded with the new baby, I took care of tending to the two oldest, cleaning the house and making meals. It seemed pointless for the Relief Society to bring over meals.
I anticipate in the next few months, I may have to go to the hospital for surgery. When I get back, I wonder if we will receive meals while I recuperate at home.
