Food is Love

A few more things we were able to do as a part of our Month of Thankfulness! We are a family that believes in hospitality. We like to open our home to our friends and family and want to be a home where everyone feels welcome and included. This past week seemed to be crazier than normal but we still managed to squeeze in a little love for others to celebrate all that we are thankful for!

First we gave our sitter Ms. Riah a gift card to Sonic to treat herself to a drink. Mariah started babysitting for us last year when we just had Max and Stella. She is a great sitter and we so appreciate her! She is responsible, dependable and even at her young age she manages to watch all 4 of our kiddos without an issue! She is also very giving of herself and her time! When she was just 14 she started a ministry project to provide stockings for the homeless of OKC on Christmas Day, along with a hot meal and respite from the cold. In just 3 years her project has grown immensely and she is often found speaking to local youth groups and working to get more sponsors and donations for Stockings for the Homeless. Check out her project on Facebook HERE!

Another way we chose to show our appreciation and gratefulness for others was to give a little gift of Tastefully Simple! I have been so blessed by my Tastefully Simple business and it allows me to give to others as well! In particular I was feeling led to provide some meal ideas and products to make a holiday meal a little more special for a family in need. I hope it is just a small way to give back in a way that would be important to me. Holiday meals are a special time of conversation, memories and special treats and I want this family to enjoy all of those things without a burden.

Food is Love this week!
