"The best memories are about things we did, not things we bought" . Food and things we make together are big memory makers. Bob and I made the house together last weekend, the day we decorated the tree. A cardboard kit with a few embellishments we glued, painted and embellished together. The cranberry chutney is a seasonal favorite. I made and canned some 4 dozen (1/2 cup) servings this year for Moms' friends at the Senior Center and for Bob's coworkers. (The recipe is on the jar lid).
The Winter Stollen cookie recipe can be viewed on my healthy meal blog. I packed 2 each in
little cellophane bags for Bob's coworkers with a few bags left for Bob

It was just a few years back I brought my Dad and his first cousin together for the first time. Bernice, who lives on the western end of my county, had never met Dad, who about 100 miles away. Bernice and her niece Gerry knew much about Mom and Dads' hometown. With Bernice now 95 and Mom 91, I wanted to get together again, though aging didn't make that easy. Yet we did it, meeting in between at Penn Alps. What fun we had being among women who love each other.

"This special wish is sent to you
To thank you for the good you do."
My lifelong friend Liz celebrates a birthday on December 3rd. Thus the "3 French Hens" tie-in. Liz, a retired special needs teacher, now babysits several of her nearby grand children.
Sally was a cashier at the Healthy Cafe and greeted each of her some 500 customers with a smile and "how are you today?" This birthday card is for her.
"People love you for being kind
People love you because you care.
With all this love coming your way
I hope you have a special day."
