The tale of Anna and Gill's apples.
Anna, a friend from school, who I'd reconnected with on Facebook, posted on facebook she had apples from her tree if anyone would like them - she wanted to spread some love and kindness and such like.
I'm a sucker for free stuff, and I thought it would be interesting to see Anna again after all this time (about 17 years on!) so I asked, may I have some?
Anna said, sure, come over, so we did. JJ loved playing with Anna's son's train set. Anna and I had a lovely time chatting and I definitely plan to see her again. One person loved and blessed.
I gave some apples to my mummy. Two people loved and blessed.
My neighbour brought round some pears they grew in her garden, I gave her some of Anna's apples.
Gill popped round with bags of apples. I was blessed again.
I asked on facebook if any friends wanted to come eat leftover party food and help me process apples from Anna (and lots from Gill). Good times working and talking together. Three more adults plus three babies/children loved and blessed. And I was blessed again by their help.
In my freezer there are several bags of peeled and chopped apples. I will use them to make jam, cake, and crumbles. Many more people the apples will be shared with, loved and blessed.
A tale of a bag of apples. Friendships rekindled, friendships strengthened, people fed, people loved, people blessed.
