FC: Food Made with Love
1: To My Darling and Beautiful Granddaughter Kathryn Marianne Bass Williams "My Katie Kat" 12-22-12 We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving. I’ve made all of these recipes and enjoyed every minute of cooking for the people I love. I found and still find it very therapeutic. I hope you will enjoy these as much as I have and hand them down to your children. Remember that the mother is the heart of the home. I love you Katie Kat and will miss you and your beautiful smile. You've been a special love in my life and you've given me so much joy. Please be safe, happy and loving. Creation of woman from the rib of man: She was not made of his head to top him; Nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him; But out of his side to be equal with him; under his arm, to be protected; and near his heart to be beloved Love and Kisses, Your Favorite Mammy
2: I thought you'd get a kick out of a couple of poems I wrote when I was a kid. Actually, I was in 4th grade when I wrote both of these at Franklin Elementary school in La Crosse, Wisconsin. My house was 1618 Charles St. and I lived right across the alley from my school. My teachers and my family were really surprised that I wrote these because I was so young, and initially thought I had copied them from some book, but I didn't and they did end of believing me. Raindrops falling on my face As if they couldn't see, You'd think they'd be considerate And not splash down on me. I cant rely on nature, With all her foolishness Because she is the cause of it, And yet she wont confess! Two pretty flowers were whispering low, Telling one another what the other didn't’ know, They talked of the snow and the wind and the rain, And the pretty little fairies that danced in the lane. And two pink elephants were walking by, Twas just enough to catch your eye If you don't believe this tale is true, Go talk to the flowers in the mist and the dew!
