Bottling peaches this morning with my friend Heather. She graciously came to help and to learn at the same time. To thank her for helping, I told her I'd send four jars home with her. I keep a notebook in which I write down what I paid for fruit each year, who I bought it from, and how many jars it made, to keep tabs on what I'm spending and producing. Well, when I went to write the results in the notebook this year, I found that my bushel of peaches (purchased for the same price as last year and from the same farmer) made exactly four jars more this year than last. Exactly the amount I'd told Heather I'd give her.
Little blessings sneaking into my life here and there, easy to miss if you aren't looking. :)
