We were put in small groups (there were six of us) and given the challenge to go out in the community and create a 'feast' for a family. We could not use any of our own money. Outside of my comfort zone? Yes in many ways. In the end amazing, beautiful experience hard to put into words. A group of people working together to help someone else was a great way to spend an evening, indeed. We took a feast to a young family that will help them for many meals. The father was in shock. Afterwards, I sat in a room with 40 other people sharing this experience and being reminded that we can do hard things and make a difference in other people's lives. I won't think of the words - create and feast in ever the same way.
Earlier that day lunch included time with a friend at Cali Pizza. This has been an amazing connection. Wasatch Woman brought us together and each time we meet, we learn more about our connection. We just made the connection that she lived next door to another dear friend (who has since moved) for several years ... a triple date is in the works! In the picture above, Cricket is waiting for our cab to take us home with our yummy feast from Cali Pizza - barbecue chicken pizza. My favorite question as I was waiting there was - hey where can I get one of those harnesses for my dog? I tried to explain its so much more complicated than that!
A picture of an orange? Steve and I have a little tradition. When one of us peels an orange, we share. Oranges are such a surprise ... mostly they are so yummy and delicious; on ocassion dry & disappointing. We share the experience and relish in te yumminess. The one that peels the orange makes sure to leave some for the other. I know I am too busy or focused when I realize I ate the whole thing without offering him a slice. Today, he left early and will be gone til late. His orange slice is still there :). I will save his little feast of an orange for later.
Cricket and I are creating a big mess at the moment as we are trying to declutter my home office. She keeps sighing, like please can't we go outside and play. I told her sometimes life (or a room) gets messy before its clean. Sigh.
