I’ve always loved cooking for them. Preparing hearty and healthy meals that fill the college soccer girls in the midst of hard core pre-season training has always been a joy. Blessing them by giving them home cooked meals – especially for those who are away from home for the first time – has always been my goal.
But I have to say, this year a little extra love has been stirred into the gravy. Why? Because this year, the team is returning the blessing by helping us paint our house. Truly, I don’t need anything more from them than their “thank you so much, this food is awesome” and I don’t even need those words of affirmation since their smiles say it all. But since helping us paint worked into their pre-season schedule (team bonding with paint brushes!) – I couldn’t be more pleased.
Here was this morning’s crew. Another eight will show up tomorrow, and then Wednesday…
For several mornings this week, the army of girls will come ready to work – after their morning workout and before their afternoon practice and wow these girls are tough, hard workers. This is why they need loads of good food. :)
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I’m so thankful that our family can be a part of the lives of these young women. They’re great with a soccer ball at their feet, and have proven themselves to be quite handy with a paint brush. Blessings all around!
