Spiritual Healing- Friendsgiving

A Friendsgiving Feast- UzbekStyle








I enjoyed some great company this evening. Tonight we really embraced the meaning behind community; accepting that "being busy" is no longer a good enough excuse. I am so grateful for not only my biological family, but also for my spiritual family. It is so important to have both- and there is so much healing that can take place in the presence of a community that embraces one another as family. My dear friend, Margarita, did such a wonderful job putting this feast together. I had the privilege of tasting so many new foods tonight. I learned that almost everything is pickled during the winter season in the Uzbek culture. My contribution was the flan cake. The presentation did not turn out quite as I was hoping, but it tasted delicious!

I do have to admit that it was tough at times for me to be in a room full of gorgeous married people with their children being one of the two single women in the house and longing for the same myself. It does sting. I'm not going to deny that. But it was also so nice to be surrounded by such lovely people and getting a glimpse of the beauty of family and knowing what I have to look forward to one day. God is always good.
