Happy Saturday! I thought it might be helpful if I share my perfect gifts of blessings during recovery.
The perfect gifts are the ones that worked and thus were labeled a blessing…so I thought I would share why.
I put a card at the top, because I loved the card so much as a great graphic to encourage me to see this recovery time as a journey to wellness as well
Perfect gifts in recovery are those which reflect thoughtfulness to the recovery situation…and I certainly have received those from friends and family.
So, get your comfy Saturday spot and let’s discuss how you can bless others when they are in recovery.
PERFECT GIFTS DURING RECOVERY – #1
I have to begin with the perfect gift that has been the biggest blessings…and that would be visits from friends and family,
I am an active person, so when this grounded me for awhile, it was so nice to have visits. I encourage you to not just drop the gift off, but take time to sit down and talk.
What a blessing that is!
Leigh Ann stopped by recently with a wonderful, healthy dinner prepared for both of us.
Then she sat down for awhile and we watch “Dancing with the Stars.” I loved the meal and the interaction!
PERFECT GIFTS DURING RECOVERY – #2
The reality, after two foot surgeries, is that daily baths are just not possible right now.
So, when my friend, Karen, showed up with a scented lotion, this became a perfect gift.
So, nice just to freshen up with a lovely aroma when you know someone might stop by and just for Mr. B!
This was really a perfect gift during recovery….and it was in a bag with a candle, magazine and notepads…perfect!

PERFECT GIFTS DURING RECOVERY: #3
Healthy foods have also been perfect gifts during this time when I am not moving that much.
Yogurts and veggies have been a blessing.
But, perhaps the perfect gift during recovery has been this homemade granola…fabulous…and from my new family.
2 cups of oats
1/2 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup of pistachios
1/3 cup of melted coconut oil
1/3 c real maple syrup
Stir to coat all and turn on a parchment line baking sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes and then stir…do this three times over 45 minutes.
Once it cools, add 1/2 cup of dried cherries and shredded coconut.
Oh my goodness, this is so delish! I just ordered the ingredients to make more..now that is a perfect gift.
Was really good with yogurt.
She also included this green tea from Trader Joe’s…and I am a huge green tea fan.
PERFECT GIFTS DURING RECOVERY: #4
Perfect gifts during recovery become perfect if they help the care giver.
Poor Mr. B has taken on so much as the new quarterback on the home field.
One of his duties became watering plants. sadly, there have been casualties, but I know when I come back in the game, I can replace those.
This Giant Amaryllis is a perfect gift during recovery if you want to gift a plant or flower.
I can watch the bulb grow over time and it does not have to be watered at all! (Mr. B rejoiced)
His best friend also smoked a brisket for him…and that was the perfect gift for my care giver. It arrived with beans and baked potatoes…yummy!
Perfect gifts during recovery do include helping to keep the care giver happy!
This was carefully selected by my new daughter-in-law. Score!
My desire here is that you will get ideas the next time you are faced with finding perfect gifts during recovery for friends or family members.
This is my hit list!
Now, I would love to hear your ideas as well and that will help all of us!
Thank you for being here…hopefully join me tomorrow for a recovery update….and make sure that you join me as we…..

I was encouraged to explain more about my SHOPPING LINKS page and how to use it. (In fact I just added a few new brands to the list)
I am an affiliate for many different brands and when you click on those brands and shop, then I receive a small commission.
This is such an important income for me and my family.
I have tried to include the brands most shopped by this audience, but sometimes I miss one of your favorites.
If you will tell me what you are shopping, then I can tell you if I am affiliate for them and give you that link…if it is not already on the page.
And remember to send your holiday recipes and decorations with pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send to email and do not try to put in comments! YOU are the best.
