In Remembrance-

March 3rd, 2011

 This morning someone very near and dear to my heart sent me a message and suggested I write something cheerful today.  She knows who she is and I’m grateful beyond imagination to have her in my life. 

The picture to your left is tonight’s dinner-  a tostada or (homemade taco’s) as Carol used to call them.   I ate them for the first time at her place, and I’ve made them many times in the years since.   They are one of my favorites although I do try to make them as healthy as possible by using l0w-fat cheese etc. 

These tostada’s (tacos) hold a lot of happy memories for me.   It seemed that every time Carol would make them, there were always extra people at the dinner table that night, but then- that was often the case at their home.     Everyone was welcome and in Carol and Denny’s eyes- the more the merrier.   It was never an inconvenience and I know many of us- myself included aren’t those kind of hosts or hostesses, at least not all of the time.

I think of Carol often and think of the wonderful times that we had together in years past.   I know that I’m not the only one who misses her- but her memory lives on in all of us who loved her and believe me, there were many.

    When people litter our lives with memories and shared experiences they live within us and through us always. Wonderful post. Looks like an inspiring dinner, too.
