The power of Taco Soup

So I'm sitting here on the computer trying to edit my blog to make it look more interesting. I'm actually sitting in my recliner with my foot up-feeling very unproductive and maybe a little sorry for myself. I look out and see the Big Van pull up. I call it the Big Van because the family that drives it has 7 children under the age of 10. The mom, Laura is a fabulous chef, decorator, organizer, mother and the list goes on and on. Such admirable qualities that I strive to possess. Well.... in walks Laura (mom) who says "I've brought you lunch!" She proceeds to find a bowl for me, and pulls out of a large brown bag-tied with a ribbon no less- the base of taco soup and then opens up a box. From this box she adds chicken, black beans, corn, green onions, cheese, tortilla strips and says "Enjoy! "
Now that is a moment of pure kindness, service and love! I truly feel as if Heaven is watching over me and I feel very, very blessed right now and not so sorry for myself anymore. Yesterday I actually was thinking how helpful it would be to have someone bring me lunch. I'm so grateful that Laura is sensitive to the spirit and listens and follows through. I feel very, very loved. Besides Laura is one of the best cooks I know and taco soup from her is better than any restaurant anywhere!
I feel like I'm the luckiest girl in the whole wide world!!! The power of Taco Soup!
