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.
praise through work.
how perfectly true! what a great way to remember...:)
thanks for sharing that.
can't wait to see you!!
WOW....He IS pretty good with words.... I'll make sure he sees his "honorary" post. Loved your writing about all the composting going on at your home....it IS that time of year!
Makes me tired just thinking about it. And makes me grateful to be alive in today's world. We've got it so good.
Call me a sap, but that brought tears to my eyes! Hooray for traditions!
