When You Care, You Cook
Today we stayed longer at church than we normally do. We all decided to sing a few more worship songs since we had someone playing keyboard and guitar. Since it was after 7:00PM, we decided to get something to eat before we went home. Shortly after getting home, just after 8:00PM, we heard a knock at the door. It was our neighbor Olya with her hands full of food. She told us that she had decided to fix dinner for us. Unfortunately we didn't come home at the time we usually do so we missed having dinner with her, but she left us with some delicious homemade Ukrainian food anyway.
Olya doesn't have a lot, but what she has, she always shares with us. She continues to be a close friend and like a grandmother to the boys. (In fact, that's what they call her, "grandmother" in Ukrainian.) It's nice to know that someone cares enough to cook you a meal "just because".
