Do something nice for a friend

Do something nice for a friend

A friend of mine and her husband recently celebrated the birth of their first child- a boy! He is a bit premature and spending some time getting bigger in the hospital.

So, what do get for friends in need? I didn’t want to assume anything, and I know they would be too busy to get together…Being at the hospital day-in and day-out is exhausting and draining. The last thing I wanted to do was impose on their precious few hours recovering.

So, I baked some blackberry muffins, gathered up the baby shower gift I got and then didn’t have time to drop off before the baby arrived (eek!) and had Ian drop it off on their doorstep with a card. The card was actually a Winnie the Pooh quote that we printed and pasted to a construction paper ”Sometimes the smallest things take up the most space in your heart”

And voila! We left it on their doorstep and didn’t have to impose on anyone’s time. I still wanted to show I cared, but didn’t want to make it seem awkward.

This worked out really nicely, my friend appreciated the gesture and said she gobbled up a muffin as soon as she got home. And raccoons didn’t eat the muffins! Thank god!
