Right about now you are in the afterglow of Christmas and looking forward to a brand new year with 2019. One thing I am grateful for: LEFTOVERS! I am a big believer in the fact that many foods actually taste BETTER the second or third day. Somehow the salads marinate a little bit more and the desserts settle into their sweetness in a delicious way.
Don’t knock leftovers…it means you had the means and the time and someone took the TIME to make your holiday special. What an amazing thing in these times. A recent survey predicted that as the Baby Boomers age, we will have a whole section of society called Elderly Orphans. They are folks without immediate family to take care of them in their older years. It happens more and more and it made me so grateful and aware of the people in my life that love me and want to share the holidays together.
One thing I did was make lifelong friends that became my handpicked family. Yes I have a family, but those friends that choose to be around are an added blessing.
So if you see someone without leftovers this year share some of yours with them. There is nothing like homemade food to warm a heart and fill a tummy and let others know they are valued and loved. Peace Family, be a conduit of that love. Be Jesus to others.
