Thanks for stopping by. If this is your first time you're here, you'll notice that this blog is about a 40-day experiment that I did. The problem is, the posts start at Day 40, and this blog site won't let me reverse the order of the posts. So, if you're interested, go ahead and start at the beginning, in the July posts. It will make a lot more sense. I promise.

Day 34: Act of Kindness

Thank you, my friend, for the wonderful act of kindness you showed me tonight. As our group gathered around the snack table, folks oohed and ahed over your spread. And my cup overflowed.

You see, for our Restore Community meeting, a group of over a dozen adults, my friend and hostess had set out the following snacks:
1. Edamame
2. Apple slices (with optional dip)
3. Spinach salad with strawberries and some other delicious looking stuff, and a small bowl of plain spinach to the side.
4. Homemade applesauce (made only from apples)
5. Almonds

And, you won't believe this, but people actually ate!

I am so grateful that during your hectic crazy day, and in the process of getting your house ready to have guests, that you thought of me. That made me feel so special. You are a gem. A really sparkly gem.

(And while I'm at it, thank you to all of you friends and family who have been really supportive. From the "Want an apple? I think I have an apple," all the way to the brown rice pasta and multiple accommodations from my mom, and the crackers from my sister-in-law. You guys are the best.)


  1. You are a joy to serve. Truly.

  2. What can we say - you are our inspiration and we look up to you! It was a beautiful feast!!!
