Just back from Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan. There we sat in the basement of the home in which mom now resides. The decision was made to eat Christmas dinner with her there instead of disrupting her daily routine by taking her away from the familiar.
10 adults, two children surrounded the tables. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, french cut beans, marshmallow salad, green salad, apple pie, pumpkin pie, . . .
What else do you need for food? Nothing!!
And the table included talk and singing. Mom, although she cannot remember a conversation from 10 minutes ago, remembered all the words of carols that we sang. She still has a beautiful alto voice – her harmonies are to enjoy and treasure.
All in all, a good time had by all!!!
