my joy

I hadn’t had a group meal for a few weeks and it was so nice to have people in the house. It always amazes me how much joy and energy I get from having others into my home.

I recently visited my grandma High after not spending much time with her for most of my life (see post- molasses in the afternoon under My Menno Musings). She talked to me about the many, many weddings and church events she has cooked for in the past. It bought her joy to work and provide, and be a blessing to others. We talked about being productive and using our hands. It was eye opening to me…..that I could have more in common with her then I ever thought. I came away with a better understanding of her….. and a better understanding of myself…..more later…
