Pimento Cheese Calzone

Sometimes you get a special gift, yesterday my mom gave me some homemade Pimento cheese. She said I made to much and it’s about a week old, I said you brought it to the right place.

I’m blessed by both my parents, sorry for those that no longer have any. My brother Alex took his life 3 years ago and we will always struggle with his loss. If you are a survivor of suicide you know it never goes away.

If you are thinking suicide please reach out to God. The holy spirit can save your broken heart/body/soul. It’s not going to be easy, just keep saying “I trust you Jesus”. If that doesn’t work for you try the Suicide Hotline, your life is important don’t give up.
