No matter the life situation – good or bad – there is one thing that makes us all feel better: Food. The amount of delicious food that has been dropped off to us has been pretty awesome. We go to weddings, we eat. We go to birthdays, we eat. We go to funerals, we eat. We have babies, we eat. We don’t feel well, we eat. Eating good food makes problems seem smaller.
Thank you to everyone who made or dropped off food, or offered to make food (we only decline because we don’t need that much). But also thank you for the cards. Thank you for the e-mails. Thank you for the texts. Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for offering to help. Thank you for thinking good thoughts. Thank you for the side hugs (beware the left side). Thank you for the distractions. Thank you for the outpouring of love. We may not need a lot of help right now, but we greatly appreciate all of the offers.
If there’s one thing I’ve come away with, it’s this: a really, really good meatball greatly aids in the healing of anything, and could possibly end wars. Do not underestimate the power of a meatball. Embrace the meatballs! Plant more meatball trees! (Sorry vegetarians.)
