Thankful Thoughts - January 13, 2017


I am thankful for sweet memories of childhood and the things my mother did to care for us.  I am still enduring the miseries of a cold, and pretty much took it easy today.  I made myself a cup of hot tea with honey and some cinnamon/sugar toast, just as my mother did when we were sick as children. It was as much about comfort as being hungry.  I'm sure that my mother was watching me and smiling.

    1. The environment we grew up in as a child makes so much difference, doesn't it? My childhood memories are mostly good while I was young, Papa Bear had a very loving mother, but his step-father was something else. He had to be a grown up long before he should have.

  3. My grandma used to do the same thing!! Tea and toast with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. How funny is that? And I swear it works better than any medicine cooked up in lab! :)

    1. That made me smile! Maybe it was a common remedy for general maladies back then. I know it usually sat well even if you had a bit of flu. I think that's why I still see both as comfort foods today! In fact it's exactly what I have beside me at the moment! We did far less medicine back then, and I think we all developed better resistance because of that. We tend to over-medicate now.

    1. She was a very good mother when it came to taking care of us Keith, even though she faced her own struggles and emotional issues. As I've gotten older I've realized how much effort she made on our behalf.
