Thinking about the gift of friendships, we were talking to our kids that we are the only ones who can search out, pray for, and make happen these kind of friendships in life. You and I.

It’s the people that matter

It’s the people in our lives that matter, and when our eldest recently thanked my husband and me for showing him the gift of hospitality, paving the way, he was relating it to a good investment in life.

I’ve often told our kids: Don’t be satisfied with just letting life happen to you, day in and day out, so caught up in things that don’t bring happiness or joy, so out of control with our busy schedules, that we don’t have time for others.

The bottom line is this: Just make it happen! Butternut Squash Granola Parfaits These delightful breakfast parfaits are easy to make ahead the night before. You can make your own granola, or buy it.
