Friends, our goal this year is to host more gatherings. I like the idea of small, because it’s doable, and people get to connect more. They don’t have to be fancy, in fact, set the food out buffet style, or invite friends over for appetizers or dessert.

Love People. Cook Them Tasty Food

A few months ago, my cousin, Peggy, came to visit and brought me this lovely reminder (magnet) on our fridge.

There are 2 things I love about this; it’s orange (my fave color), and it speaks my love language.

Why orange? Well, when I think about my “entertaining personality” I’m yellow (sanguine)/red (choleric). Which combined is my favorite, orange! Don’t you just love the personality colors? (I’m pretty sure my cousin Peggy has the same personality that I have, too, except she’s a bit more bubbly fun.)

I also love the message … Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food. Yes!

My friend, Bill, shared with me the other day a study that was done by Tony Campolo, a sociologist who surveyed 50 people over 90 years of age. The question asked was: If you had to live your life over again, what would you do differently?

The answers were very similar.

If you had to live life over again

-I would have taken more risks.
-I would would have invested more time in developing and maintaining my closest relationships with family and friends.
-I would have left a legacy in the lives of others that would live on long after I was gone.

Risk taking is hard. I know, because one year ago I stepped out in faith to make a big move.

Investing in others is often a sacrifice (time and money), but my love cup is FULL, because we put a lot of effort in to being with other people. I can honestly say that our family has been tremendously blessed because of this.

If you take risks, and invest, I can guarantee people will be talking about you, and remembering you, the impact you’ve made on their life, for a lifetime!

If you had to live life over again, is something we should all think about.

Happy Monday, Friends!

  1. The message you wrote … Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food… I know it very. It’s on a spice magazine I receive and buy my spices from. I even visit one of their stores close by where I live.

    The time I got divorced and had two boys to take care of I decide to learn how to cook I had the boys go along on that learning how to cook trip. I bought books and got advice from friends and family. Good things came from that decision. When the boys went to college they could cook and take care of themselves. Even now, out of college and with good jobs, they cook for their girlfriend or help them cook. I got so involved learning to cook to take care of the boys and making sure they ate good that at this point my family and friends are always asking if I can cook and bring a dish they liked to the family/friend gatherings. I would not want to cook as a job but enjoy do it because I enjoy doing it.
