Selfless giving

Our wonderful friend, Laura, whipped up this AWESOME dinner for us tonight. She said she knows what it's like to have a sick baby and wanted to cook so we didn't have to.

We are so touched. And full.

I've given home-cooked meals like this before, but this is the first time we've received one, so I didn't know how to accept it, but she made me! She even gave us homemade dressing! I'll have to get her recipes for the casserole and the dressing. Yum-O! And I'm pretty sure that's the first time in a LONG time I've had cookies that weren't break-and-bake! ha ha!

Thank you so much, Laura!!!Those are JD's hands, by the way. I just wanted y'all to know I don't have man-hands.

There is nothing like a little food when things are rough! Our sweet small group delivered an obnoxious amount of food to our house when we came home from the hospital, just so we wouldn't have to worry about it for a few days... it was SUCH a blessing.

And honestly. I think I just drooled a little bit. What on EARTH is that cheesy goodness that she made?

Nothing says TLC quite like home cooked meals, huh? Glad you have such sweet and caring friends nearby. How's the baby doing?

I know you say that Laura and I are similar, but this totally sets us a part. I would never do that. I don't even do that for my own family let alone yours. I might stop by McDonald's and bring you something. Maybe...

Cookies that aren't break and bake? Hmmmm...what are these things of which you speak?

I have given but never been a recipient either. Looks yummy- from a distance. Not ready for some heart cooking like that yet.

Kelly's comment totally cracks me up, by the way.

ROTFL about the 'man hands'! lol

We've done 'meals that matter' for our church members many many times. We had never been on the receiving end of it until our baby came home from her 2 month stay in the NICU. It was such a humbling experience. It made me know how appreciated (and important) meals are when you are in need of them.

That is just so sweet of your friend! What a fabulous friend!! :)

Please do share what that casserole creation was! It looks yummy. I have been on the giving end of meals at church for many years - but when I was put on bed rest with my twins the church members brought US meals 3 times per week. It was always tons of food and always tasted so good!

Please enjoy being taken care of!
