Peaches - Friend and Fruit
I have this friend. I have never met her. She is a rock star. Somehow, she always knows just what I need to hear.
Things have stunk around here lately. After weeks of a really sick boy, we finally found out Dylan has pertussis. He is miserable. I am tired and miserable. Miserable times.
Life must go on. I know this sounds silly but peaches had to go on. Peaches were on sale and needed preserved.
I am tired. I have the can't help its. I haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks but in my mind, I see a chance at saving money, being frugal, making healthy foods and stocking up for winter dancing through my mind.
So what did I do? I went and got peaches.
Erg! What was I thinking?! Half way through, I was sitting here, resenting those stupid peaches. So MAD at those stupid peaches. Ridiculous, huh?
Enter Laura's post about her house. Laura has a house. Laura has an awesome house but sometimes, Laura doesn't like her house. Laura changes her thinking and sees it as a blessing. Laura recognizes and is thankful for her blessings and in turn, reminds me to look at my blessings and be thankful.
Peaches. I am so tired of peaches. However, let's break this down...
We had money to buy peaches. We have jars, pectin, lids, rings, lemon juice, sugar and all the kitchen tools needed to make the jam and put on the peaches. I am alive to make peaches. I have kids to eat peaches. I have a husband that makes such an approving taste of the peaches. In the winter, we will have fresh peaches.
I am blessed. Blessed by peaches. Not just the fruit peaches but the peach of a friend and sister of Christ. Thanks, Laura! <3 p="">
Coming soon, I will share how I preserved those peaches! :)
