The comment that gets a post of its own

I love the comments you leave me. *Love* them. But this one? Gets a post of its own. It's in response to my "preciousness of food preserving" post, and it's from my wonderful friend and fellow blogger Rodger...
We precious boys here who love canning as you do often take a moment when canning to praise our mothers and grandmothers. Not only did they preserve food, they also cooked, cleaned, raised the children and did the laundry. A couple generations back they did it all without running water.
Heh...not one of us would be who we are without them and canning gives us the opportunity to praise them for, not only life, but it's bounty.


Well said, well said.

Makes me tired just thinking about it. And makes me grateful to be alive in today's world. We've got it so good.
