Pork--the Gift for Two Gals who Have Everything
Whoopidee doo! Teri and I think it very sweet (and not of the honey glaze type of sweet either) and we mused that it adds to the community feel that we so want for our celebration. In addition to being a wonderful gesture, it is also a good lesson for ME in letting go. After the warm fuzzies of soaking up our friend's offer, I turned to Teri and said "This means that I have to let go on how it is cooked and it will be someone else's recipe instead of mine..."
"Are you going to be okay with that?" Teri asked. Well, now, I am going to have to be and what a good lesson in letting go and letting others do what they do well.
Isn't this the crutch of the tug between control and community?! In order to experience and participate in joy of friends, family, and receiving, one has to let go of the pull to be in control. And doesn't that come back to trust? If I want to live in harmony and connection, then I have to let other people do what they do and be who they are and learn to just say "thank you" with an honest appreciation.
