My sister-in-law Marybeth is something of a mother hen. She likes caring for others and it comes naturally to her. 

I've been the fortunate recipient of that kindness on many occasions.  Each time it happens it surprises and delights me. 

This morning it's snowing out. As I was getting dressed, I heard her call me down to breakfast. 

Keep in mind this is around 6 AM.


She had made a full breakfast. This included eggs, bacon, toast, juice, and full coffee service.

I told her how thankful I was that she had done that.  She said she didn't want me going out in the cold without a hot breakfast In my stomach. 

I'm grateful for her kindness on this very cold day.
