Today I accepted the offer from a friend to come do some Christmas baking for me. It is a rare thing for me to let another woman in my kitchen. That it felt so good and natural for her to be there was a blessing. It is a very vulnerable thing to accept help. I am hoping that I am learning that having limitations is okay. That I don't need to prove anything to myself or others quite so much. It's not that I couldn't have done the baking but the price of doing it would've have been a few days on the couch. It was pure grace today that I was able to receive. Thanks for being a companion on the journey my friend.
