So I'm feeling grateful for good friends that we've already met here in this short time. First with Allison helping give us counsel about Stephen's school, and yesterday - Kassie didn't come home on the bus. Holy cow - I was so scared. We called the school and her sweet teacher was there with her waiting - apparently Kas went to the bathroom right before the bus came so it left without her. So as I was walking out the door to pick her up, I got a call from Elaine, the mother of Kassie's friend Maureen -- the teacher had called her trying to locate me to get Kassie. So Elaine offered to go pick her up and bring her home to me, since Elaine knows we only have one car. It just brought tears to my eyes to have someone show selfless love like that. Awoman made a comment in church Sunday about how God loves us and wants to help us, but He usually does it through someone else. The bus incident gave me a wonderful moment to appreciate God's hand in watching over us. So often we just go on living our lives, not realizing that those morning prayers where we ask Heavenly Father to watch over us... they really are working.
On a lighter note -- I read an email about cancer-fighting asparagus and decided we for SURE need to add that to our diet! So I got this big bunch of it, reminded the kids of Grandpa George's "when you're green inside, you're clean inside" motto...
Then we cooked it up like Feffer said: olive oil and Salad Supreme seasoning for 10 minutes... it was perfect!
We all gobbled it up and plan to have it daily!
