“Now isn’t that a dainty dish to set before the king.*

Well, hardly!

But it is greatly appreciated by my husband and me.  It is one of the many things my community (and country) does for us.  The Senior Center continued serving lunches even though we can no longer meet there to eat.  They had a pick-up service a couple of days.  Then a laid off school teacher began delivering the lunches voluntarily.

The little star notes have been attached to the lunches.  Done voluntarily with sweetness from a staff who still show concern for us.   I’m sure with the change that exists, no one is making them write “lovie” notes to us.  They are just the kind of people who go beyond what is required.

So, although this might not be the “dish” designed for the king, I dare say it cannot be served with any more love and care.

Thanks Jewel, Ashley, Carol and others, including school teacher, who are holding on and going beyond, while we are holding on.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
