Τη κάνεις, Παππού, Still trying to practice me Greek! LOL! I found the book you gave me before my first trip to Greece: Greek Made Easy. I will always treasure it! To be honest, it wasn’t easy to carry it around with me at first, when traveling through Europe, but your love and thoughtfulness sure meant a lot to me making it much easier! Hopefully, one day I can get back to my Greek lessons.
Better news, you’d be so proud of my cooking! It’s not the greatest but I’m improving! I made another Phanouropita tonight, because with St. Phanourios’ intercessions, I found very important paperwork that I was missing. It didn’t turn out well, however, I did get some great advice as to how I can improve on the next one. I do need to make another one with my mom. I made her promise to make one with me if I helped her in prayer. She’s been down lately, and I thought that would cheer her up. She was nervous agreeing at first, since we found her missing item right away, but now I think she’s warming up to the idea. We haven’t been able to make it yet, because we’ve both been ill. Hopefully soon though. I also learned how to bake bread! Speaking of, it’s finally ready, and I need to get myself to bed. I’ll tell you more about it next time.
The bread turned out horribly. I wasn’t patient enough. Plus, I didn’t make sure I had all of the correct tools. I was so hungry for that bread! I wanted it so badly that I lost sight of what was more important; I wasn’t thankful enough for my blessings. I think it’s similar to something I learned in Greek called “poniro”. I also overdid it in the fact that I was taking on too much, doing too much at the time. I am really wondering if God is trying to slow me way down to help me learn to be more patient. Speaking of, I wasn’t patient writing this. I was going to go to bed and write to you in the morning. Oops! Well, at least I caught it now and will make sure I get right to bed! 😊👍
