Fortune Cookies

I cheated last night for dinner. After our busy weekend I was so tired. Tim was at a late meeting and Kaden is not feeling well. I went to the kitchen to start dinner and I only had half the ingredients. I ordered some Chinese. It was so good and I did not feel bad about it at all. My boys are good eaters and both love fried rice.

A thing we do here at the Gabbard house is read our fortune cookies together. Here are my favorites.

1. Mine ------ Under promise and over deliver.

2. Kaden's --- Do not worry about holding a high position; worry rather about playing your proper role.

I think both would be great sermons.

How neat. When our kids were little we did a kinda chinese spin off meal...usually ramen noodles and sometimes rice and veggies, etc. (I've had to adapt some of my recipes due to Glen's tastes) Anyway sometimes we would splurge and buy the chinese fortune cookies and we would goaroudn the table and read them..We always explained to the kids they were just for fun...wonder if Tim remembers doing that???

Anyway absolutely lvoe keeping up with the kiddos :) :)!!

I just wanted to thank you for what you did for us with dinner last night. It is very special to have friends that come to pick you up when you've been beat down and are bleeding. Times like this teach me to live life looking at the peripherals and not get tunnel vision.
