Blessings of Friendship

I recently read on a blog that was encouraging its readers to random acts of kindness. That was the day I planned to do something special with my youngest son to cheer him up since he was missing his brother. My plans were changed when we were in a car accident instead.

I happened to think of this since I have been blessed this week. Even though I have been sick since Monday afternoon I haven't really had to cook this week. On Sunday evening my husband made omelets for us. Monday night he again took over meal preparation for me. Tuesday I put pizza in the oven, so no work there. On Wednesday he brought home a meal for us. Yesterday a friend made a meal and brought it for us. It's enough to feed us for two more times. Tonight another friend offered to bring us a pizza.

So I have had many acts of kindness given to me this week. My dear husband brought me a palm plant because he was thinking of me. He knows how much I love to see the palm trees when we go south. It also is a reminder of my son that is going to college in Florida.

I praise God for people that care about me. I look forward to when I am feeling completely better and can bless others as well. Is there anybody that you can bless today?
