and tonight leanna brought us dinner as a thank you.
she out did herself.
and if all this wasn't enough, she baked oatmeal, coconut cookies. yummm!!!
i must say that it was very difficult to accept her token of thanks. bob and i didn't want her to spend so much time making us dinner when she has 3 young kids and a very busy life. she has been so grateful for the help she has recieved, that we both felt that her gratitude was "thanks" enough. with that said, i remember a dear friend once said that as we give, we recieve blessings and it's not fair to keep the blessings to ourselves. we must allow others to give to us as we give to them. it's something that i try to remember. i LOVE to serve and i am doing my best to let others serve me.
i am so grateful for the friends in my life.
i am grateful for the graciousness of others and the opportunity to serve.
with every day comes the chance to make a difference in someone's life.
it could be something as simple as a smile or as elaborate as a beautiful meal.
however, the opportunity presents itself, don't let it pass by...
thanks leanna, we think your awesome!
(so is your cooking!!!)
