hmmmmmmm OK...1st of all this is a thread about food. So that's what I came here to talk about.
Do people who condemn others ever stop to think that they may not understand what the others may have gone through. Do they understand the contributions these people may make in their communities even though they do not feel the need to come here and brag about it. Well I am not here to preach to people about how to treat others, but I can say that when we choose to have nothing left to enjoy we are wasting our time, and quite possibly the time of others.
Even in times of grief, we were meant to find JOY when and where we can.
Even in times of grief there are still body's to nourish, elders to care for, volunteer work to do, food to cook and yes possibly even gutters to clean...
Oh by the way, hopefully this won't insult anyone, but we had meatballs, rice and cauliflower for dinner, very good too.
We had this meal while visiting family at my mother in laws house. I am so grateful for my husbands family as my whole immediate family has died of cancer. My mother, father, and sister. I am grateful for what I have. I also really enjoy carrying on the recipes in memory of my mother who made us all feel warmly welcome with her smile, laughter and comfort food. She's my hero.
I have an uncle and a couple of aunts left on my side of the family, and my wife just had an uncle and cousin pass away in the last week or so. The loss is a part of life, but it only has to be a physical loss for if they are remembered they are always with us.
Did delivery work and Christmas shopping yesterday so fast food was the order of the day.
