1/2 Chicken With Pork Fry Rice and An Egg Roll
When we first moved to the United States, we had to find our bearings like anyone in our situation would. To provide for the family, my mother did live-in work and left us with family as she worked towards her career and family goals.
Once a month my mom would treat us to Chinese food, and we would order ½ chicken with pork fry rice and an egg roll and that meal would share for the three of us with leftovers. I do not know how because I have kids now who are younger than we were, and they EAT. 😉
Looking back, it reminds me of the parable of the two fish and five loaves of bread. It just kept multiplying. This is a great memory for me because over these meals we would discuss our goals for our life and family. And it was at these meals I learn to be content with where I am as I work towards where I wanted to go. Because as my mom always say, “little is much when God is in it”.
Are there any events in your life that seemed so small but had a positive impact on you? If so, please share by leaving a comment.
