A few weeks ago I read a story posted by HerViewFromHome.com that really touched my heart and it’s so fitting for Mother’s Day. It was about a very unique tribute from a granddaughter to her very elderly grandmother. The senior of the two was known for her good home cooking and her granddaughter said her favorite was her grandmothers chicken and noodles recipe.
Enter a kitchen renovation! Unbeknowst to the grandmother, her granddaughter was putting in a new backsplash around her stove and the surrounding counter. The young creative woman took her grandmothers handwritten recipe that was scrawled on an index card and had the words greatly magnified and permanently etched on the backsplash from LimitlessWalls.com. Her grandmother’s handwritten recipe is now around the stove and countertop area. It is very attractive on a pure white background with black lettering. The granddaughter will have this memento of the love she felt in her grandmothers kitchen and in her cooking long beyond when her grandmother is gone.
There were photos of the grandmother’s visit to her granddaughters house seeing this beautiful tribute. The grandmother was clutching a tissue because she was brought to tears of joy when she saw the surprise her granddaughter had for her.
Happy Mothers Day to all women who use and show their maternal instincts in raising children and in feeding others through caring, meals, friendship, mentoring, teaching or by being a “pet mommy.”
This photo is in tribute to my loving mom, who always made room at her table for anyone –
family, friend, stranger or foe. Miss you dearly, Mom and your lentil soup!
Nothing this red-headed, spitfire loved more than when people gathered at her house.
