9 years ago I registered for this blog site ~ 9 years!
In my very first post I wrote about topics I love: Mom, cooking and life lessons.
A lot has changed but a lot stayed the same.
I am still cooking. Still learning. And I still write about Mom .. but now it’s about how much I miss her.
But – I had the most wonderful day yesterday ~ out & about between meetings, snapping pictures of my Autumnal drive. Just Magical! The colors, the brilliant blue skies and the sights & smells cannot be captured in mere photos.
a worthy stop alongside a Michigan back country road ..
Bright & colorful Mums – smiling and grateful for a route such as this one!
Then – last night we received the terrible news that a dear friend’s Dad suffered a massive stroke. No chance of recovery. Hushed whispers and tears ache in our throats while we wait the news of what comes next. There are no words, nothing we can do or say that will make a lick of difference. All we can do is show up, lean in, and do our best to love and comfort all of them.
So, in the meantime, I will cook the foods, learn the lessons, and give thanks for my favorite season *Autumn* and that He gave me the world’s most wonderful Mom.
