Happy Birthday, Mom. I Love and Miss You!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A mother is a person who seeing there are only 4 pieces of pie for 5 people promptly announces she never did care for pie (Tenneva Jordan). I smile when I read that quote for it reminds me of my mother.  Today she would have been 89 years old.

I lost her last January and yet perhaps I am more aware of her presence than ever before.

I find that she is with me every day in my thoughts and in my actions. Particularly in the kitchen.

Momma was a good cook. A really good cook. From breakfast to dessert, she could cook it and cook it well.

cookie

It began as a thought. An inconsequential thought that danced through my mind.

“Do you like cookies, cakes, or pies better?”

No doubt, I thought. Cookies. Yep, I love cookies. I love the texture. The chewiness.  

Then I began to envision THE cookie.  A dark chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal and pecans or walnuts.  Now for those of you who know my family, I am not talking about Eddie’s favorite cookies, No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, which are not a cookie at all because they are not even baked! He often mentions these cookies and church members will bring him batches of them to show their love. We even got a batch after my surgery. (How does that work? It’s my surgery and he gets his favorite cookies!)
