In other news I will be home soon! I am kind of ready! I need some rest for sure!
Today, I was freezing and soup sounded so good! I went to McAlester’s and one of my favorite things was on the menu… Chicken and Dumplings! I haven’t really liked the thought of Chicken and Dumplings since my Meme passed away a couple of years ago. You see she always used to make them for me. They were the best things ever and she knew how much I loved them. It was our thing! I am talking homemade and everything. I “helped” her out in the kitchen a lot when I was little and man would I give almost anything to have some of her dumplings. It has been too long. So today, before my test when I was feeling a little stressed, I went to get some chicken noodle soup and there I saw “Soup of the day, Chicken and Dumplings.” I thought what are the odds? I guess that was my Meme saying, “Hey boy, you look like you need some of these!” So thank you Meme for taking care of me when I needed a little encouragement. Even though they were not as good as your’s, they sure made me smile! Want to send some carrot cake next?
It literally amazes me everyday how God plays his part in my life constantly It is something that I am very thankful for. I mean sometimes it can be the small things like Chicken and Dumplings or it can be something much larger. The main thing to recognize here it how cool it is being able to see him work in our life’s. Take time out of your day to look for this because I assure you, it is there. Thank you God for being here! You do know what is best and I am thankful that today it was some Chicken and Dumplings from my Meme. I appreciate that so much… Maybe she is making you some? If so, you are one lucky man!
Southern and Thankful
