Join us at Walk a Mile to share a story of grace or achieving a warm, soft heart.
My story of a warm, gracious heart is something I am still working on... have not yet mastered. As you know if you are a regular reader, my son got married this summer. It was a wonderful, happy celebration. Nothing but joy all day long.
My son and his wife are vegan, and so they worked with the caterer to choose vegan food to serve at the wedding reception. The food was beautiful, delicious and plentiful. There was something for everyone. If you didn't know it was vegan, you might not even notice or be "scared off."
Shortly after the wedding my mom asked me with kind of a snarly look on her face "what made Steven become vegan?!" -- It's that bad a choice, Mom???? I'm actually quite proud of him and his wife.. they both have made their choices based on morals and principles, from learning about land use and how animals are treated in the meat industry. What's to not love and be proud of? I'd be a vegetarian myself if I weren't so dang lazy about learning a new way of cooking and eating.
So I'm working on not feeling mad and petty about my mom and her 88-year-old self who tends to be critical of things that are different. Still a work in progress........ I think I'll make a God's Inbox and put a little prayer in the box to ask for help with this one. It's not good to hold a little grudge against my dear mommy.
