It’s my mama’s birthday.
And I don’t take for granted for a minute how amazing it is to be able to celebrate with her on this day.
I also don’t for a minute take for granted how incredibly blessed I am to have a mother who loves me as much as she does.
I find myself thinking of my grandmother more than usual this week. Missing her.
My dad’s mom, who passed away just over a year ago.
She used to make me eat all of my Brussels sprouts at holiday dinners before I could leave the table.
I hated Brussels sprouts. Don’t remember what actually ended up happening to them, but I’m fairly certain I didn’t. ever. finish them.
My mom and I ate at a fancy Ramen place tonight. I had this delicious blend of vegetables and broth and noodles. And my favorite part?
The crunchy, roasted Brussels sprout pieces nestled in my bowl. I know for certain that I ate them all.
Here’s to another day of creativity…
