Last Thursday night was our Apples of Gold Celebration Dinner. This is the dinner given after the ladies have completed the 6 week program. The spouses are invited to this dinner and we all dress up a little. After a delicious dinner prepared by our cooking mentors and served to us by two couples, we gathered in the living room for a time of sharing. It was such a blessing to hear from the ladies as well as the spouses ways they had benefited from these weeks. We presented each lady with an apron that says Apples of Gold. They are now considered Applesauce and will come back as kitchen helpers the next time we have a group. I meant to take a picture but totally forgot. I, along with the other mentors, were totally surprised with a beautiful bag full of thoughtful gifts from the ladies. Mine had white chocolate (because I can't eat chocolate), an adorable apple cookie cutter, sweet towel and a book mark that one of the ladies made. I loved each thing!!! Another gift each mentor received from one of the ladies was a Willow Tree Angel. Two of us received the Angel of Wonder...doesn't it look like a golden apple in her hand! I love it. The two mentors that prepared the cooking demonstration and meal received one with a tea pot.
I feel loved & blessed by ALL the ladies!!!
