The Gift Of A Meal
Girlfriends! What would we ever do without them? After a very long and tiring week of trips back and forth to the hospital the last thing I felt like doing was cooking. Hospital food is certainly less than appealing and when returning home late at night I didn't really have the energy to cook. That's where girlfriends come in! Girlfriends have that instinctive knowledge of when you are need of a home-cooked meal and a hug. They don't just "ask," they DO!! I was the beneficiary of one of those meals and honestly, words cannot describe how happy I was to see my girlfriend come to my door armed with a casserole in one hand and a hug from the other. Believe me when I tell you, such a seemingly small act can make such a big difference in a person's life. I want to encourage you, if you feel like someone you know could use a little "love from the oven," don't just think, DO!! You will be such a blessing to someone, I promise.
** One thing I always do when bringing a meal to someone is to bring it in containers that DON'T have to be returned. It is one less thing the recipient has to worry about;)
