Month of Gratitude - Day 2

I am grateful for "Nature's Candy" (that's what my Gpa Monty calls it, and it's stuck)!  For as long as I can remember my Gma Norma has made raspberry jam from her own home grown raspberries!  It was a special treat when she shared a jar with us!  Then I learned that she'd give me one just if I asked!  Then I was asking ALL THE TIME!  So I guess she decided it was time I learned myself... what a great gift to give me!  I still beg for her home grown raspberries (cause it's just not the same with store bought ones) and now I make my own jam!  Anyone that really knows how my kitchen works knows it's a special treat if I share!  Next step... get a start from my grandparents so I can grow my own "Gma Norma Raspberries" and continue the tradition!
