Casual Thanksgiving Lunch

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. --Amelia Earhart

Setting a beautiful table, inviting a friend for lunch, a warm hug to someone who is struggling...all of these can be life changing.

Although I love to set a fun or beautiful or quirky table, it's not about the design...it's about the people.

Is somebody on your heart right now?

Ask them over for lunch or dinner...

If you don't have time to cook, pizza is great. It's the invitation that matters.
Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness. ~Seneca

The ideals which have lighted my way time after time have given me courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth. ~Albert Einstein

Simple Tips: Cut up small citrus fruits; lemons, limes, and tangerines! Add mint and it's so pretty and looks so autumny! I love the store Fresh and Easy....I made these tea sandwiches with the "Curry Chicken" filling, already made up! Sprinkled paprika...took 5 minutes. Added herbs from the garden, 2 seconds...

Guilty of doing this combo just for the colors! I love green and yellow together. All of the flowers were from Fresh and Easy, the $4.50 bunch and they look gorgeous in plain glass...

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
~Leo Buscaglia
