Food is love

It’s an old saying that may well be the cause of weight problems for many people, but tonight for me it takes on a new truth.


Last night I cooked a meal for a family I have never met to show them they are loved and prayed for. Just before Christmas, one of the families in our community lost their teenage daughter in tragic circumstances. Our church has done what it can to support this family through this awful time by (among other things) providing a month of meals. Tonight is the evening I signed up for. Once I’ve finished my coffee (priorities) I’ll take them some spaghetti bolognaise. It’s not a flash meal – it’s comfort food. I hope it brings them some comfort and respite.

I took this photo while out getting groceries. Yesterday’s Fat Mum Slim photo a day challenge was yellow. I thought these guys looked pretty cool.

Sorry for the slightly heavier post! I’ll try for a lighter one later today.
