Fun Friday

Photobucket


Margie: One of my very favorite websites is Southern Plate by Christy Jordan. It's a wonderful place to visit for recipes, contests, and stories.

Christy has just written one of the best stories ever called "Seven Cakes." Even though this is not exactly a Fun Friday story, it is definitely one that will make you tear up and feel fortunate.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

That was a pretty sad story...it brought back memories of my mother's stories. She was one of 13 children, born to sharecropper parents in Pelahachee, MS. She tells of backbreaking work, picking cotton and of living in a one room
shack. She was fortunate to get away because she got a scholarship to nursing school.

Dearest Miss Margie and Miss Edna,

I cannot tell you how honored I am that two ladies as lovely as yourself read Southern Plate!

Thank you so very much for mentioning it on your wonderful blog. I wish you both the Merriest of Christmases for you and your families!
Gratefully,
Christy :)

If you could send perhaps two of those delicious cakes to NY I will be your best friend forever :-)

Tis the season to be TIRED. I am sorry to have been away for awhile, but the holiday season tends to take all your free time and blogging time away from you. With that being said, I wish you a Very Merry Holiday and hope you get to enjoy many warm smiles with your whole family, kindest regards Glenn and all your friends at MOB :-)
