Together

We made chicken soup from homemade stock — added carrots, cabbage, and green onions. At the bottom of four bowls, we placed a generous scoop of mashed potatoes before ladling in the soup. Two of the servings went to the cooks, one was given to a friend studying hard, and the other to a friend who has a cold. she didn’t leave the couch all weekend. The mashed potatoes dissolved into the soup to create a thick, creamy broth. We sat together and ate, telling funny stories.

It tasted like healing
