Despite the woes of the past three weeks, this week has been fabulous so far. I’ve been up and around and even able to go to our son’s baseball game! So things are looking much better than they were last week (though still working on that clean out…details, I suppose.)
I have to share this story from early in the week, because I LOVE this kind of thing!
Wanting to give my colon every chance to work, I put myself on a (mostly) liquid diet.
One day (I think it was Monday), I started the day with almond mylk that a neighbor and friend generously (and regularly) makes for me.
A few hours later, I stared into the fridge. My dilemma: Without “eating,” I didn’t have the energy to juice or make soup. I could have almond mylk again, but I didn’t see anything I could really eat.
The doorbell rang and I was happily surprised to see Phyllis standing there.
“I brought food,” she said, running back to her car to retrieve it.
Not only was it nice to see her, but Phyllis is a retired professional chef. Her food is amazing, and I was grateful. I hadn’t planned dinner for my family and was glad that she had it covered.
She returned from her car carrying a tray of chicken parmesan, a container of homemade tomato sauce and three broths. THREE BROTHS. That I could eat.
She could not have looked more like an angel if she were showing wings and a halo.
Here’s to all the angels around us who deliver these miracles like it is no big deal.
