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!
Todd & I met in April 2002 and were married June 6, 2003. Now we have a nine and a half year old daughter, Olivia, an eight year old son named after his grandpa Gary, and Suzy Anne that is almost three!
I'll never have this day again - And when today is through I may not have another chance For things I ought to do - The friendship I should offer, The kindness someone needs, The thoughtfulness I can express In loving little deeds, The helpful words that someone Might wait to hear me say - Lord, help me to remember, There's only one today!
