Being pregnant has been the best time of my life! I’ve never felt as good (pretty and healthy) as I have since I’ve been pregnant! Yet, as great as I feel, I still have my days when I just don’t want to get out of bed. On those days, I just like a nice warm cup of hot chocolate (my “go-to-pick-me-up”) and a delicious bowl of soup (or even broth). When I’m not feeling well, I like to have warm stuff that will ease my throat, even if my throat isn’t what is hurting. Luckily for me, I was able to do a review for Spoonful of Comfort, and I just happened to have one of my off days shortly after receiving my package from them!
The Story Behind the Company: 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.
The day before I started feeling unwell, I received a package in the mail sent by Spoonful of Comfort. I immediately opened it and found a great surprise: 64oz jar of Chicken Soup, 6 Oatmeal Raison Cookies, and 6 Made From Scratch Rolls! It all looked so delicious! The note said to be sure and eat within 3 days of receiving, so I figured we would eat them in 2 days because my parents we were going to be house sitting for my sister and would need something to eat for dinner when we got there.
Little did I know that the following day I would be feeling so “icky” and unwell. As soon as I got up, I knew it – today wasn’t going to be my day. And Joshua decided to fix him and I a nice warm bowl of the Chicken Soup, heated up the rolls, and brought the cookies in with warm hot chocolate. Oh my, oh my! Everything was fantastic! There was no doubt that the soup was homemade – absolutely delicious – as was everything else!
As if the soup being homemade wasn't enough, to top it off, Spoonful of Comfort only uses natural ingredients, with no additives or preservatives! Want to know the ingredients? Simple. Chicken stock, pulled all natural chicken, noodles, carrots, celary, onion, sage, parsley, sea salt, and down-home comfort.
