Spaghetti to Go

My young women from church came over tonight and I taught them how to make spaghetti, garlic bread and a layered chocolate dessert. We ate dinner and then quickly put together 4 separate dinners that can be reheated for another night and headed out into the neighborhood. It was a nice surprise for some of the older, single people and I think they enjoyed the visit and hugs more than anything. We were all especially happy tonight knowing we brought joy to four people. This is what life is about.

This got me thinking about meals at our place. We cook often and we make a lot. I was thinking how easy it would be to put together a small meal for some older people in our neighborhood. This is something I definitely want to continue.
