Goose did incredibly well in a world that he is not used to. He went over to our neighbor's house and asked her where he should take me joking around that maybe I would enjoy Hometown Buffet (ugh!). He called the suggested restaurants and made reservations at a wonderful place that Eric and I loved to go to.
My neighbor friend happened to mention the lovely thought of our son taking me out to dinner to an aquaintance of hers. This person happens to be the wife of a Doctor in town that co-owns a medical building that houses a very nice restaurant. He found our story to be very sweet and made arrangements for us to have dinner at the said restaurant for free. But, not only did they get us reservations (on Valentine's day no less) and a free meal but they also had flowers waiting for me when I got there. We were seated at the best table and even the tip was taken care of.
What makes this even more special is that this has opened a door for my neighbor to witness to this friend who made the arrangements in the first place. Isn't God good? Eric had never met these people and yet his life will be an instrument in giving them the Gospel.
By the way, the meal was wonderful and the conversation with my son was priceless.
