OT - Thankful Thursday
Happy Thursday, STalkers! This has been a crazy work week for me and I'm happy to be winding down to the weekend.
I am thankful for:
- New glasses. They'll take some getting used to (my first pair of progressive lenses), but it's really cool that I no longer have to take off my glasses to read!
- My new employer. SO awesome to finally be treated like an adult!
- Knowing how to cook AND how to cook creatively. I'm so glad my Mom taught all of her children to cook - starting around age 5. It began with helping Mommy find the right ingredients in the pantry, then handing them to her, then being allowed to measure, crack eggs, stir things, and so on. Mom's teachings are how I learned to cook by smell and taste because ingredients are NOT created equally. When I'm making an old family favorite that Mom taught me, I can almost feel her hands guiding me. When I wing it and "throw some things together" to create a new recipe and it turns out delicious, I can feel her approval. I've been cooking for darn near 50 years and I LOVE it! And I'd give a year of my life to spend one more day in the kitchen with my beloved Mom.
What are YOU thankful for?
