My First Blind Student...and Tender Mercies

Everyone, meet Jasmine. She sat in the front row at all of my classes on Saturday in Rancho Cucamonga, California and she is visually impaired.  Her whole family was along for the meals in a jar class day and I was thrilled to see her excitement raising with each new meal she sampled.  It seems like a small thing to me to make a meal and put it on the stove but to Jasmine, age 24 who has never cooked her own meals, a whole new world was opened up. Thank you Jasmine for reminding me how precious life is and how much we all lean on one another for support.  You may think I helped you yesterday, but really...you helped me. You reminded me why I do what I do.

If you ever wonder what the good Lord has in mind when new doors are opened you were not planning on entering into or why you're called to pass through the challenges you face, remember this. There will be problems that arise. There will be difficulties to overcome, but God will never leave us alone. All around you are opportunities to do good. Do it. You'll never get to the end of your life and say, " I wish I had done less good things!"







There it is. Happy Sunday my darlings!


Always My Very Best,
Your Friend Chef Tess
