One of the most generous gestures I ever received was after the birth of our first child.  A friend inquired when would we be coming home so she could "start the meals" - and over the next few weeks, a different person dropped off dinner.

I have incredibly fond memories (yes, maybe a bit selective) of those first few weeks at home hunkered down with a newborn, in large part due to the relief of knowing that dinner was done.

Since then, I have been able to return the favor many times. Recently, a dear friend whose generosity has made her the ringleader on many of these "make a meal" occasions introduced me to a very cool website Take Them a Meal.   In good times and bad, the gift of a meal can work wonders, if even for a moment.  This super cool site streamlines the coordination process for all - a true gift.
