Last installment (I promise)!  :-)

Super practical ways to love, by serving, your friends- here they are:

  • Offer to watch her kids while she heads out on her own for a few hours.
  • Bring dinner, for no real reason…besides simply that you love them!
  • Provide date-in-a-box for a friends who just had a baby.
  • When you show up for a play date, bring the other mom’s favorite coffee drink for her.
  • Plan a girl’s night and teach a skill you’d like to share (scrapbooking, sewing, a craft you’ve recently done…)
  • It’s spring!  Head to a nearby plant sale and use some leftover grocery money to pick up a few inexpensive plants for your friends.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

    My sweet friend Debby is always making little bags of favorite things for me. Nothing too expensive… a chocolate bar, a 16 oz box of tasty soup, an asian pear, some little fun thing for my kids, or some body wash. It’s so encouraging!
