Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux
Last Friday our oldest granddaughter and I had a wonderful day together. It began with a friend giving her an art lesson and ended with picking blackberries and baking cookies.
Baking the cookies took me down memory lane. I found the very recipe that my mother had taught me ... the one that her mother had shared with her. I told my granddaughter about Mom bringing a batch sugar cookies to Pops and me when our oldest son (our granddaughter's dad) was born. When Mom did that, she was speaking the language of love.
There's something special about passing down a family recipe to yet another generation!
Have you shared a family recipe with your legacy?
