I was greatly impressed and inspired when I read Monica's recent post about taking food to a friend suffering with morning sickness. Though I have always wanted to do something like that for someone I know (and even have fond memories of having it done for my family when I was a child), I never have. I changed that today by bringing a basket of food to an older, single woman in our church who is going through chemotherapy. We included: Chicken Tetrazzini, Manhattan Clam Chowder, yogurt covered raisins, applesauce, chocolate chip cookies, mini apple pastries, an apple, peppermint patties, and The Magic of Ordinary Days in book and dvd.
Try to do this for someone that you know is suffering... it is hard to care for those outside of your family, but caring for others is an incredibly important thing for feminine women to master!
Thank you for giving me the push I needed, Monica!
