What Makes Me Tick ~day 13

A couple months back I was talking with one of the doctors at work who loves to cook. He said "I love to cook because food makes people happy and I like making people happy."
I couldn't have said it better. So true!
I thought about posting this tonight while I was making Flower Girl a batch of soup at 8pm for her lunch tomorrow. She wanted no part in bringing in a little can of Campbell's. I've created a monster ;) After the ROUGH week I've had what I really wanted to do was kick back but sometimes you just do things out of love.
In the end it always pays off. When I came up to bed she had a glass of ice water on my bedside table, and "I Love You" stick-it note on my computer, she had folded and put away the laundry that was on my bed, and a BIG thanks for making her soup.
And it also helps when Maine Man says things like.......
"I love that you love to cook. I love that you cook with the kids. And I love to eat the food you cook"
If he only knew I wrote down what he said to me way back on 12/31....I'm not to be trusted, lol. God I love that man!

And what a wonderful monster you've created. She will raise her children to eat fresh, locally grown good for them food not processed, preserved stuff that passes for food. And on top of it she folded the laundry and gave you ice water. That is the best testament to what you're doing is right and appreciated. Sounds like your efforts are special to Maine Man too. You are one lucky woman.
