My Mother was born in 1913 and passed away in 1995 and I miss her so much! (see her picture at the end of this post) I wish I had been more attentive to her when I was younger and she was still around. I do remember going to her home when she was older and in a wheel chair and I would love to comb her hair and fix it for her. She loved it when I did that. She did so much for me and I really don’t think I ever really told her how much she meant to me.
I was raised in a family of 7 kids and Mother always had the Cookie Mix made up ahead and she could whip us up dessert in no time! It is a dry cookie mix that she made so many things from. It was always in a canister on the very top shelf and I remember when I got big enough to climb up and get to it, I would reach in and steal a hand full and just eat it just to satisfy my sweet tooth!
