Meals and More

Since having Lance we have been inundated with not only visitors but meals as well! The girls at MOPS graciously set up a list for anyone willing to bring us meals. Some of my girlfriends not involved in MOPS participated as well. Not only was it a huge relief not to have to cook every night and be able to spend that precious time with the newest member of our family, but it has been a financial help as well. What a blessing to have someone make a home made meal for my family. For me, nothing shows love like food, seriously. Thank you so much to everyone who brought over a meal or snack basket, it means the world to us!

I must say however that a certain aspect of one meal was the Icing on the Cake! After the meal was dropped off I was (excitedly) unpacking it when I noticed a fancy box. I took care to let my three year old continue to exclaim over the bag of tortilla chips and grabbed it quickly out of the bag. When I opened the box here's what I found...





























Did you hear me gasp?


It really is the simple things in life that give me pleasure. Thank you Lord for the wonderful women I am friends with, and the ones I have yet to get to know, and thank you for cupcakes. :)

i am so happy that you were blessed by the meals. as a meal-giver it was a small price to pay to hold a newborn and give you a day of less-stress.
