THANKSGIVING: STUFFED WITH MEMORIES
Up until her last few years, she made the deviled eggs and dressing and I made the rest. Now that she's been gone for too many years, it has fallen on me to pay attention to that instinct that tells me when the potatoes are done and the turkey is ready to come out of the oven. No matter how much I try, what spices I use, what ingredients that I add, my dinner will never taste as good as the ones that my mom so lovingly created. She knew how to cook and feed her family with love.
With this remembering, I am reminded of all the blessings that I have been given and I am grateful.
Here's wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving. May your plates be full, your waistbands elastic, your loved ones healthy and your friendships ever lasting.
