(All my past Motel Monday posts can be viewed HERE.)
Welcome to week 13 Topic: FOOD
Several of you have asked what we have been doing as far as our eating situation goes...let me tell ya, eating out is getting really boring. But we have been rescued on a regular basis by some pretty awesome folks!
First of all is my married daughter Lulu. She lives just 5 miles down the road and has rescued us with some of her cooking plus every Friday she has taken the kids to her apartment so they could spend the night and give CL and I some 'quiet time'.
Our next rescue came the week we moved into the hotel. Leaders from our new ward (congregation) came by to see us and offered to organize home cooked meals to be brought in 2X a week.
Our Ward Relief Society is made up of the most loving and caring women. Every Tuesday and Thursday for the past 13 weeks we've had delicious meals ---HOME COOKED meals, brought to us. There were no complaints and these women loved the opportunity to help make our stay in the hotel a bit easier for us.
NOTE: I learned a long time ago that most people love to serve but don't know how to be served. If I could pass one thing on to all of you it would to be gracious receivers when someone serves you.
Also, another regular rescue has been our General Contractors...
Yes, you read that right. Our builders are a husband and wife team. (They also have 6 kids ages 15 - 3). They live about 20 miles from where we're building and they have had a standing invitation for us to come every Sunday for dinner. We have been to their home so many times and have been catered to with a delicious meal everytime. Lisa loves to cook and her husband Mike is great in the kitchen too. (In an upcoming post I'll be showing some pictures of them in their kitchen).
With all these blessings, from the Lord, I can't complain about hotel eating.
NOW for some motherly observations...
Daughters bring food and sons expect to be fed.
Even our daughter who live in other states have brought homemade cookies and treat when they've come to visit us while we've been living in the motel. BUT whenever our sons, who live just down the street, have come to visit they rummage through our little fridge and pantry until they find something to eat! I love both of these observations!
Just a little added bit of information: this might possibly and hopefully be the last 'Motel Mondays' post...Wahoo! Look for updates as they unfold!
