As many of you know, I LOVE to cook. I love to have people over and feed them. I love to try new recipes with Jesse. I love to get a new cookbook and work my way through it. Why then, have I not had the desire AT ALL to cook this past month?? Am I tired of it? Am I sick of my kitchen? What is going on?
I have been asking myself these questions recently... and tonight I discovered the answer. I was standing over the skillet cooking squash and zuchinni, with fish in the oven and it hit me:
I love cooking because I love Jesse.
I love cooking because I love my friends and family.
I love cooking because I love to share something that I have made with the people that I love. It is hard to motivate myself to want to cook when it is only for myself...
However, Jesse is coming to see me this weekend!!!!!!!! He will be here Thursday night-Sunday afternoon and I am so excited I can't stand it. Only 3 more days! I miss him so much and am so ready for him to be home for good. We've made it a month.... 2 more to go. Thanks for everyone who is praying for us and helping keep me busy while he is gone. It means so much to me. Love you all!
