We arrived home this evening , after a long drive, and supper was waiting.
A dear friend dropped off comfort food from Luby’s: fried chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes, cream gravy, green beans, whole wheat rolls, green salad, carrot salad, tomato and cucumber salad, and congealed pistachio salad. The large iced tea- with lots of ice- was just for me.
She also brought this because it is my husband’s favorite.
Coconut Cream pie
I felt like weeping. Her husband had watered my plants- as had other dear friends.
My father drove up (Boy do I have a post about him. His house caught on fire day before yesterday!), and he began to spray two of my rose bushes. The cutter ants had stripped them- just to keep things real around here. I followed my father around the yard as he sprayed, asking him about the fire like a little girl tugging on his sleeve while he was busy working , and he said:
“Now don’t you be worried about that house.”
Lastly, I opened the refrigerator and saw this.
Our daughter Lauren harvested my first home grown tomato- well actually, it may have been the second; she said she ate one.
Home Sweet Home. Thank you God for traveling mercies , wonderful friends, and dear, sweet family.
