Sunday Thought

This past week was the anniversary of my Mom’s passing.  It has been twelve years.  I miss her.

23744_10200223922311812_103019769_nI had a work trip in Tallahassee, and it went very well.  I so wanted to call her and tell her everything that happened.  Instead I rambled to Carmen and David, and they listened, laughed, and responded like I hope they would.  Mom would have done the same thing, but…

I miss her stroking my hair.  I would travel home for a visit, plop in front of her and her lazy-boy chair, and she would just begin stroking my hair.  It was relaxing, calming, and re-assuring.  Something so simple could mean so much.

Carmen, Oma, Stephen July 2002-1I also miss her with my children.  I love this picture of them.  Her chocolate cake, and snuggles, spoils —like every grandmother should.

Blessings.

Sandies-Mom

I have spoken about this before, but this time of year I really miss my Mom.  I crave her presence in everyday things.  I searched for this Sandie cookie recipe, and love that I still have her handwritten card.  Two versions of it apparently.I was able to replicate her recipe (apparently rum extract was the secret!), and it is wonderful. The cookies were perfect, and will post the recipe and directions later.

I miss her.  I miss my Mom, cookies are nice, but it’s not my Mom.

Love and blessings.
