This week, I wanted to share with you one of Mom’s article from Home Life Magazine. She only wrote for Home Life for a couple of years, but I love having these magazines to look back at and enjoy.
Here is one I have from October, 1994.
When Mom wrote for our local newspaper, she took the pictures for her article herself. However, when she began writing for Home Life Magazine, they had a cook make Mom’s recipes and a photographer take pictures of them.
Sometimes Mom liked the way the pictures turned out and sometimes she didn’t. She would say, “That’s not what my recipe was supposed to look like!” It was the perfectionist side of her. A characteristic I may have inherited from her. (wink) :)
I love how Mom began most of her articles with a personal story about our family or friends. She also always included a “Food For Thought” at the end of each article. She loved using her articles to honor those she loved and treasured in her life, like her sweet Mother-in-Law (Granny), that she wrote about in this one.
I hope you enjoy!
Here is the article as it appeared in the magazine….
I separated the article into smaller sections so you could see it a little bit better…
Have a blessed day!
