… and their food. That’s what I’m thankful for today.
For this… (and so much more just like it)
and all the peaches that I forgot to take pictures of…
and all the fresh farm eggs that my mother-in-law brings when they visit…
and just today as I was standing outside school waiting to pick up my daughter, I noticed Mrs. S (a sweet little library volunteer and substitute teacher) hauling bag after bag of fresh pears into the building. She stopped on one of her trips from the car and asked “Would you please take this?” Um… yeah!!!
I was only wishing that I had brought the wagon so I could “help her out” a little more! (Fresh pear crisp sitting on my oven right now, by the way!)
We have been so very blessed this summer with fresh food from family and friends!
Oh, and I’m thankful for my little guy, who brightened my day with this conversation when he saw the pears:
“Yum, Mommy! I wike dat!”
“Yes, you do.”
“Wat is dat?” he asked. (I LOVE how he “wikes” it before he knows what it is 😉 )
“Those are pears.”
“I wike pears!”
And then a few minutes later he kindly asked me if he could have some “parrots” for supper. I love him!
