The dancer was so excited to cook in the new kitchen. She began flipping through my recipe books & decided we needed banana bread for dinner. Don’t worry, I convinced her to add a few more items to the menu.
After we readied the bread, she went to work in the pantry picking out berries to make a fruit salad and then cut carrots & celery while I prepared some chicken. Later she and her brothers carried some of the warm bread to our neighbor. Watching the joy she found in the process warmed my heart. I hope she will always find joy in the journey…relish each part of baking, creating, or simply breathing…life is beautiful watching her learn & grow!
