I am going to call this the parable of the banana muffins. On Saturday while we were in the hospital Spencer was not eating anything at all. He was feeling sick all day. Finally at the end of the night we got him to eat a muffin. It was soft enough for him to swallow and still had a sweet taste to enjoy. The next morning he enjoyed a few more bites. He tried to eat a few soggy fruit loops but it still hurt him. I told him that we could stop by the store and grab him some muffins and he said "But mom we can't get any today, it's Sunday." My sweet sick, hungry little boy was willing to not eat anything because he wanted to keep the sabbath day holy by not going to the store. We finally got home and sitting on our counter (a friend had found them on our porch and put them inside) a big plate of banana and blueberry muffins! My visiting teaching companion, Denise, had been inspired in some way to bring muffins by our house. Most people bring cookies, or brownies, sometimes even rice krispy treats, but muffins?! Another cool thing about it, is that banana muffins are his favorite! He ate a whole muffin that morning. Thank you Denise, and all of our other friends and family that have been inspired to bring the things our family needs at this time!
