Little man told us on Sunday that he liked Chicken Noodle Soup! I tucked that away in the back of my mind to plan to have some when the weather cools down but little did I know that Chicken “Noodle” soup would be served only one day later.
I have a very dear friend at work that is super sweet and we help each other out and just are a support for each other. She has been so excited for us on this journey of foster care. I have also met her mother several times and she volunteered to help me with an event last fall, she like her daughter is just so kind and genuine.
Fast forward to yesterday, she (mom) knocked on my office door and I was excited to see her it had been several months. She had purchased a couple of games for our little guy but she also had a large cooler in her hand…she had 4 quarts of soup and 2 quarts of spaghetti sauce. She wanted to give us some quick easy meals for those crazy insane days so we had something easy to prepare. She wanted to be a blessing to us. She wanted to support us in a way she was able.
I share this because she had NO idea that little man had just told us the day before that he loved Chicken “Noodle” Soup and neither of us had any idea that when Ryan picked him up from school that he had a fever and just wanted to lay around. But…God knew exactly what we could use, God used this sweet lady to be a blessing to us in a most unusual way…chicken noodle soup. Little man loved the soup for dinner and we have several more quarts for future enjoyment.
This was a HUGE reminder to me, that I can be a blessing to so many people…so often I don’t think I have enough to give, so often I am embarrassed because what I can give might not be “good enough”, but I just need to be a blessing no matter what, I need to find ways (no matter how simple) to help others. We never know what God is going to teach us through this journey and I need to be willing to learn and grown more than just in helping little man but also in every day life.
