Mama J - here are 5 things I appreciate that you taught me. Hope this brings a smile!
5 - Beer bread - Mama J was the first one who ever introduced me to this little genius baking trick. Back in the day when we would get together more often, the kids and I would go see Mama J and Papa S for a meal, and she would treat us to this little wonder lots of times. Good stuff - and EASY!
4 - Let your talents bless others. Mama J has been sharing her piano and organ talents for as long as I have known her, and I'm sure she has been sharing them much longer than that. Playing at church on most Sundays and holidays, teaching countless students and even selling lots of instruments to many. Yep, Mama J has brought the joy and love of music to many people.
3 - Laugh easily and often. Mama J has an easy smile and laugh and finds the humor in life easily. It's all part of what makes # 1 below true.
2 - Take pictures. Take lots of pictures. Mama J has some of the cutest pics of my little ones. I am still learning this picture taking trick, but Mama J is an old pro at capturing cute moments.
1 - Be a fun grandma. My kiddos have often spoken of how much they enjoy spending time with MJ and PS. I often think of Mama J's gifts and easy spirit with my kiddos all these years, and I want to be that kind of Grandma/Mimi.
We love you, Mama J! I hope this gives you a small glimpse of knowing that you are loved and appreciated. We need to figure out how to make getting together more often happen!
