Worth Coming Home For: Muddy’s Shrimp and Rice — 6 Comments

  1. Maryleigh, this looks like something we would enjoy at our house! We would surely enjoy it as a soup with a side salad and delicious bread. I so appreciate that you share your recipes!

    • I’d love to know how you like it, Joanne! It’s one of our favorites – then and now.

  2. Maryleigh, this post spoke straight to me. We are still in the phase of parenting where the armor is still strapped around our sons’ hearts. Though, I do get glimpses of the freedom of laughter and sharing . . . ever. now and then. I loved what you said about how, sometimes, “I love you” sounds like, “Mom. This is good. Can I have more?” Most recently for me, it was my youngest telling me how good the lemon bars were that I made in celebration of a recent accomplishment. Thanks for the reminder of the different ways “I love you” looks and sounds spoken in our almost-adult children’s language.

  3. I absolutely loved this post. It really touched my heart. I love your writing. It draws me in like I am right there with you. It is so sad to think of our kids growing up so fast and looking back and remembering those childhood days. It is hard sometimes for me to completely enjoy the present due to my looking back on what used to be. I appreciate you and your blog and faithfulness to your calling, sweet friend. Sending much love to you today. Shalom!
