At least that is what a certain soup peddler would say. Anderson Family Farms had a flock of stewing hens for sale so on Saturday afternoon, I drove out past the airport to the The Farm and picked up a couple of birds with the intention of making chicken soup for my mildly ailing daughter and my beloved family. No sooner had I filled the stew pot with water when my 6 year old daughter sidled up beside me saying 'I wanna make soup.' In a flash, she was out the front door and back with 3 smooth round black river rocks or shall I say 'stones'. What is a mother to do? Squelch the creativity of her own flesh and blood who after 5 days of being laid out with the flu, is now entirely fired up to make her own healing potion right along side mom?! Not me. Soup is love. Would you like Stone or Chicken?
Valentine's Day is fast approaching. In the spirit of the month, I am going to do a few posts about love. How people express love is so unique to each relationship. For example - this couple, Kim & Carter, got married last February and boy, were they cute. Is this a picture of a dorky mensch who loves his girl, or what?!
