Last week I went to the grocery store with all three girls. They were very good. Well two of them were good the whole time. The third had a minor, little itty bitty, all out screaming fit that ended with me picking her up by one arm, using one arm, to hoist her into the cart; it also got me lots of sympathetic looks and some, grumpy, how could your kid scream like that looks. One sweet older lady, came over, patted my shoulder and said, “we’ve all been there.” And for some reason I was okay with it. None of it rattled me. At least for that day I had arrived at the point where you just know some things are going to happen and you just have to deal with them the best you can.
While at the grocery store I got ingredients for a couple meals. And I made one yesterday. It was good and pretty, so I decided to get kind of creative and take pictures of the process.
Did my girls like it? Nope. Declared they “did not prefer it” before even one bite was eaten. But oh well.
24. I am thankful my girls have enough to eat that they can sometimes refuse what is put before them and go without that meal.
25. I am thankful we have enough to give a little to others.
27. I am thankful for a God who thought to make food fun, interesting and colorful.
