Wednesday Gratitude

First of all, I want to welcome back a dear friend Heidi, who recently lost her father.  She is back blogging after a few days away.  Heidi hosts Wednesday Gratitude at Heart and Home. I pray that God heals the pain and fill her heart with precious memories.  Be sure to go by Heidi's place!

My father passed away a few years ago and I wish he was still around.  Dad celebrated his Hispanic culture.  I grew-up around fiestas, family, and lots of food.  We spent a lot of time in kitchen and around the barbeque pit.  There was always music and football games on television.  I started cooking at a  young age and loved playing hostess.  I'm still putting together things for the kitchen and for the family.  This week I'm working on more kitchen towels for a craft show I will be participating in.

  5. Hi Yoli,
    Thanks so much for the kind words above, and for the e-mails of support while I was away. I so appreciate you my friend.
    The towels are very fun, and the food looks so good my mouth is actually watering. This from a girl who hasn't had an appetite for 3 weeks. I wish you lived nearby, I'd be dropping by with my stomach empty and ready to sample whatever came out of your kitchen! Thanks for linking up this week, I'm glad to be back!

    I pray that your friend will be lifted up by prayers at this difficult time of such loss and I will pray for her too...

  9. Yoli,
    I just wanted to say one more thing...You are such an inspiration and a joy to others...and it sounds like your father brought so much to your life that you are now sharing with so many people by your amazing talents and beautiful spirit.
