Home-made Bread, Blackcurrant Jam and Love

01 Sep

A lovely friend called in to visit today bearing the most delicious gifts! There was freshly baked and still warm whole meal bread made by G and five tiny jars of homemade Blackcurrant Jam made by N, a little of which we had this afternoon for tea. Bread and jam – surely the ultimate comfort food!

As if that weren’t enough, N also brought six beautifully fresh eggs laid by their chickens so my favourite breakfast of poached egg on toast is all sorted too! Thank you, N&G for your love and your generosity.

    I love gifts like that, I can smell & taste them from here! Hope you are progressing steadily with each new day. We are fortunate to live at a time where surgery in all areas is so advanced! Sending healing hugs! Marie.

    Now this doesn’t seem quite fair. I just showered and sat down with some ice bags after 6 1/2 hours of working outside and the first thing I see is this delicious treat. Wow – you sure have nice friends who like to make your day.:-)

    It is pretty amazing with all the amazing things in the world that what we treasure most are the moments with friends sharing warm bread, jams, and tea…The world is just not that complex after all.
