Chapter 12, Page 9, Book 17

Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.

Ruth Ann Schabacker

It isn’t the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it.

The Angels’ Little Instruction Book

Today’s gift - cook something.  Give the house chef a break and treat them with breakfast or a dinner.  Everyone has one dish their good at.  This could be your time to shine in the kitchen.

 When you cook and serve a meal, you offer something of yourself and a  meal brought to your door on a night when you have no energy to cook says that someone is thinking of you.  

The ribbons’!  The wrappings!  The tags!  And the tinsel!  The trimmings! The trappings!

Untie the ribbons…

Most of what I cook is unfortunate. I can bake a good pone of cornbread, and I've actually wone a chili cookoff a while back.
Thankfully, my wife Jilda loves to cook.

Just last night I read another blog friend's post ... expressing surprise and thanks to the sweet neighbor who, at day's end, showed up in their driveway bearing a crock pot of potato soup and homemade French bread because she knew their hearts were hurting over their dog's passing.

I'm so enjoying these posts. I've learned that often the smallest things are the biggest gifts. Just hearing the words "Homemade" make me happy!
