A Slice of Life Post: A Mother’s Day Memory



SOLSC Button

Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. The weather has finally warmed up here in Michigan. I believe our high today was in the mid-sixties, cold for this time of year, but I’ll take it. It’s better than snow and rain.


I took this pic on one of our hikes and just thought I’d share it with you.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. I know I enjoyed mine. My youngest wrote an essay for me and it’s the sweetest thing.  Here it is below.


My Mom

          My mom is an amazing person. She has blue eyes, brown-gray hair, and a nice smile. She cares a lot for me and my brother. She smells fresh and clean.


One thing she likes is writing. Writing is her passion. She also loves to read books. I also like to read. She also likes getting things for me. Some of her dislikes are junk food, rodents, and getting up early.


A life skill my mother demonstrates is always care for others first. I learned from her that you don’t always have to take care of yourself first.


My favorite memory of her is when my dad was telling her something funny, and she was crying of laughing so much.


When I grow up, I want to be a member of Microsoft. To become this I will have to go to college and persevere.


Now, isn’t that the sweetest essay? It was the best Mother’s Day gift I could’ve received. How about you? Do you have any Mother’s Day memories you’d like to share? Leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all is well with you on this fine morning. Since it’s Mother’s Day and everyone will be celebrating their mom. I thought I’d give you a recipe that’s sure to be a big hit with her and all your siblings. It’s listed below. I hope you enjoy your day.

Lorna Doone Dessert 

1 package Lorna Doone cookies crushed

Add melted butter to cookies (this is the crust so add as much butter as you prefer; about ¼ to ½ of a stick)

1 7 oz Chocolate chips

2T Sugar

2-1/2 T water

4 egg yolks

1 teas. Vanilla

4 egg whites

Crush Lorna Doone cookies and add melted butter for the crust. Put crust in 10” baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until crust starts to brown. Combine chocolate chips, sugar, and water in double boiler until blended. Remove from fire and add egg yolks, beat after each one. Add vanilla. Chill for a short time maybe 10 to 15 minutes or until the pan is cool to the touch on the bottom.

Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into chocolate mixture. Spread over cooled cookie crust and top with whipped cream.

**I usually double this and put it in a 9×13 dish.

This dessert is always a hit with my family every time I bring it. If’s a chocolate lover’s dream dessert!
