2009

As the clock ticks off the last minutes of 2008 I look back and think of all that has touched my life in this past year.

As with all years there have been times of sheer joy, many happy moments and memories filled with laughter and love. There has been loss of loved ones and dear family members. Illness in the family. Lots of tears have been shed, some in joy and some in sadness. Prayers have been offered up for family and friends and God was there with the answers. Blessings have been abundant!!!

With the New Year around the corner my wish and prayers for each of you are:

That you are all Blessed with good health, happiness and rooofs over your heads and tables filled with good things to eat. That your hopes and dreams come true. May all your needs be met to overflowing!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of my dear friends!!!!!

Happy New Year! By the way, I added more brown sugar to that first sauce to make it taste like Ma's really did instead of the way her recipe reads! haha...
