I received a delicious chocolate pound cake from my dear friend. She is a dog lover just like me and my sweet dog recently died of cancer. It was so sweet and thoughtful.

The best tasting sloppy joes, slaw and rolls.
We teach together at the same school, however through the years, I have found out that we have a connection through my daughter's husband's family. Which had provided time for some really interesting and fun stories.
I received the plate because my brother passed away.
I will pass the plate on to my assistant principal because her beloved dog, BB died this week. I can truly understand her pain and sorrow, because we are both dog lovers.
Favorite recipe: Live life to its fullest. Put God first and everything else will be okay.


To encourage individuals to Care Well for others, Karen Mulder created and distributed approximately 150 Giving Plates at an event in Holland, Michigan.

The concept of the Giving Plate is that it is on a journey that has no end. The receiver of the plate enjoys the treats given them on the plate, and then passes the plate with fresh goodies on to someone else.

These Giving Plates were created with a unique tracking feature so anyone can visit this page to learn where each plate has traveled and read about its unique experiences along the way.

If you are interested in knowing more about the Giving Plate, please email karen@wisdomofthewounded.com.

God Bless
