Todays M word is MULTIPLICATION reflections of yesterday..
Started the day early with a desire to cook. Something I have avoided lately as we have been enjoying the basics and living on a $40 a week grocery budget hey don't feel sorry for me (us) because we are blessed indeed and God has shown me how to do the double the coupon and get stuff free routine with great efficiency. He (my faithful God) in the process he has done the MULTIPLICATION by doubling my budget this week yes that is right $80 in groceries this week ( made two or double trips to get the job done but on one of the double trips I had 17 bags of groceries for $60 ..but that is a completely different post.)

Back to what inspired me today. It all started with a pan of fresh homemade cinnamon rolls. I occurred to ME that if one pan would be good then two would surely be great and MALLORY AND MADDIE agreed thus begin a day of doubles that has spilled over into this Lord's day. With an apron tied at my waist (ever growing waist) and a grin on my face the cooking begin. Masterfully cooking 2 hams one for my family and one for a precious home school family that has been dealing with major medical issues with their three year old son. It felt so good so offer a hand and to be able to pray with this family that I decided to MAKE an invitation to my dad and other mother for dinner. Back to the MULTIPLICATION and cooking again... I then proceeded to make 2 banana puddings (real homemade custard NO out of the box stuff at this house) one for dessert and one for daddy to take home. Then it was double feature time as we watched not one but you guessed it two dramas (Stone Pillow, and The Shunning). I'm finding that I am really like the idea of doing this cooking thing in doubles because all that cooking yesterday means no cooking today. Leaving more time for a double nap this afternoon well as soon as I wash the double load of dirty dishes.

I guess if there is a down side for this weekend of doubles it would be that my sweetie had to take double the meds last night to get pain relief of a bad tooth and couldn't quite get going this morning thus double cars at church this. I must admit I was thinking ahhh a new day with a new Letter M only to get to church and we get a double take as both Pastor Greg and Mrs Nancy shared their story. Wow 2 for one! Looking ahead and moving into MONDAY I see additional MULTIPLICATION on the horizon when tomorrow there will double Jenkins family members at the Center for Good Grief! One of us running for a place to talk and share and the other being dragged kicking and screaming.

In closing I would like to thank the letter "D" for sharing and taking part in this wonderful thing called life. To you the reader I am wishing you the MULTIPLICATION of all things good today and for everything good thing you do for someone else I pray that you will receive double for your trouble!
