I would love to write 200 things on some subject for this post but not the week for me. (see I am taking ya'll's advice and not trying to do everything) But instead I decided to post one of my most favorite photos that I have of my husband.
In 2002 Jeff went on a 2 week medical mission to Nigeria. It was life changing for him and for me. We both learned so many things. The above photo is a family who came back to thank him for the surgery that he performed on their son and to thank him they brought him a pineapple. Since then pineapples have been such a symbol for our family of gratitude as well as a sign of hospitality (the traditional meaning, especially in the south)
Since that time we have taken pineapples to families on Christmas eve with a big red ribbon on them, sybolizing our gratitude to them and our love for them. I just took two pineapples to the ladies I visit teach last week. I love to eat them and look at them and they make the best gift. (I also have given them to my friends who have babies with a big pink or blue bow on them, what a yummy post delivery treat)
So Jill if I could fed ex you a pineapple today I would, thank you for welcoming me into your beautiful world.
... side note for any of my friends who want to start a blog, call or email me. I will do for you what jill did for me and help you set one up!
