When you read these pick one or all that you may try to incorporate into your lives.
~~Mema loved her flowers, she always found time or a way to make sure she had some planted.
When you really like something, take the time to do it! It use to make her SO happy to just look at those flowers & then tend to them. Her petunias or asperagus ferns etc.
~~Mema loved to cook & she could. What I think was amazingly cool is that she could make the same dish over & over ....it never wavered much on taste or apperances - resturant quality. It was consistant. That is HARD to do.
~~Mema always had a candy bowl. It may be extremely full of chocolate, gummies, fruit candy or cinnamon....or sometimes partially full. But that candy dish was always there my whole lifein her home. My dad looked forward to picking up a piece of chocolate, as I did too...well, I liked the gummies & then my boys LOVED the candy bowl! It was a Mema tradition.
1.With the flowers......well, it doesn't have to be flowers. Just do something you like & reflect on it. It can bring joy. A tomato plant, a bird feeder....nature brings peace.
2.I know everyone doesn't cook...personally if I think if everyone ACTUALLY KNEW how their food was raised and how it got to the table they would start re-thinking EVERYTHING.
At least she did her best at providing some good meals to her family....not doing the cop out & extremely unhealthy option g most Americans do for food....FAST FOOD or processed packaged foods (these are TERRIBLE!)
3. Now going from fast & bad foods to lets eat candy...does this make sense? To me it does.
Moderation, moderation, moderation! My boys would be so upset if couldn't ever have candy!
Now health food stores have healthier options & taste isn't sacrificed.
