Food Stamps Don't Pay All Female Hygiene Products Can't Be Bought With Food Stamps

It's pretty simple. The government doesn't do it all. Food Stamps (now known as SNAP) don't pay for everything.

Soap, toilet paper, and toothpaste are not paid for by the government, and the SNAP program has been reduced in recent years. Those who qualify are at lower and lower levels of income.

Do you ever just want to stay longer?

A friend who Lives Positive told me about his daughter visiting him with her two daughters. They're from out of state so they don't get to see each other as often as they'd like.

Well, it was Sunday--the day for the granddaughters to return home. They were reluctant to leave because they wanted to stay and visit with their grandparents.

Their mother went outside for a walk. My friend, their grandfather, said to the girls, "Let's lock her out. You want to?" Now remember, he's talking about his own daughter.

And the girls said, "Yea, that way we can stay longer!"

Sure Mother's Day is this weekend, but there's just something special about grandparents.

Family is such a great gift. As you make a life worth living this weekend, be sure to take the time to let your family know how much you love them. Celebrate mothers and your family as you Live Positive.
