For Mom’s Day I asked my sister to bring the shortcake, angel food, or whatever. She opted to make chocolate shortbread and brought strawberries and whipped topping in a can. I had chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate syrup and mini chocolate chips. Some of us put them all in the same bowl, my brother in law’s dish held a beautiful sundae! I mean, strawberry shortcake dessert~ Mine wasn’t quite as festive, but so good.
Mom rallied to sit up for a while with my sister’s family, my husband came up from Oregon, and my niece and I identified ducks on the lake. It was a practically perfect interlude in an otherwise normal sort of day. What an absolute blessing the flavors of people, food, and experiences are!
