THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR THE WARM WELCOME BACK!
It's nice to be here again.
An interesting thing happens when a loved one dies, people being you food, a lot of delicious food. For the first few days I couldn't eat a thing (it even seemed strange to eat) but my children wanted to eat. It was so nice to not have to think about feeding them, especially at a time when I couldn't even think. My friends and neighbors were so wonderful to keep our family well fed for days and I wanted a special way to thank them. I bought a bunch of forks from the thrift store and began to bend and twist. I found it easy to bend the tongs but the handles were more difficult. Luckily, just as I had hit my frustration level, son #2 came home and helped. This is how our creation came out.
I added a Thank You sign and a pretty kitchen towel. It felt nice to give a little something special to those who did something so special for us.
