Simple Service : Treats for Friends

Service can mean different things to different people.  Making goodies and taking them to friends and neighbors might be a long shot, but it's one form of "service" we enjoy doing as a family.  My daughter recently finished up preschool for the summer, which was bittersweet for her.  Her teacher was a special friend that she misses seeing on a daily basis, but we've stayed in contact with her.  For a surprise, we made hand pies to take to Miss Dorothy.  Cutting out the pie crust...

... and delivering the treats!  I feel like service, in its truest form, is an act that lets someone know they're loved or that improves a place or thing.  While it can be a huge sacrifice on the side of the doer, it doesn't have to be.  My kids love to work in the kitchen and share their creations with those around them.  Our pie delivery definitely brightened Miss Dorothy's day and put a smile on my daughter's face in the process.
