I'm sorry. I'm a huge fan of food. I almost, ALMOST have issues with people obsessed with NOT eating, or health nuts. The ONLY thing better then food, is a huge variety of foods.

Through that buffet I've sat with close friends, Pastors, missionairies, mentors, evangelists, abolitionists, and even wives (ok...just one...mine). Today I went with my friends and co-workers (Jared, Cecil, Henri and Josh which btw we got the first glimpse of the NEW DO!!! ) Food brings out the best conversations. Jared is a new co-workers, and knowing how much he values peoples stories, I knew he was going to ask everyone their stories.

Greatful for the stories, Greatful for the where the frienships will go, and even more greatful for butter chicken.....and that Henri picked up the tab ( - =
