FriendsFamilyFood_IMG_8817People took care of us today. First, my friend Britta and her adorable, sweet, son came by with dinner and a giant pregnancy pillow. The pillow was actually for Shane, we thought it might help position him in bed so that he was not quite so uncomfortable.

Britta doesn’t exactly have a ton of free time on her hands, which made this colossal effort on her part even more meaningful to me. She is a mom of four, up from two this past May (you can read all about it here).

She brought us the most succulent vegetable lasagne, savory sausage pie and really cute cookies (which we’ll eat tomorrow) from the Riviera Bakehouse in Ardsley. And then, she took Rosey out to dinner, allowing me time to put my feet up, and then empty and refill the dishwasher.

Later, my uncle Pete stopped by with the contents of my CSA box, and offers of more food. Even though I’m off of bed rest, the CSA box was going to be a big effort tonight and it was such a relief to have it delivered.

I am so grateful for, and humbled by, the generosity of our friends and family. Thank you.
