Volcano gravy, organ gravy and gravy for picky people! My husband likes to make that organ gravy - I will have to call it that now! I am into the picky people gravy myself.Originally Posted by myrosiedog;3232296;
It is very hard for me on the holidays when it is time to think of gifts for people. Because I always used to have fun thinking of things to make or buy for my mom. My dad even used me as a consultant because she liked his gifts better after I made suggestions to him. He used to give her practical gifts like a washing machine or a vacuum or a flannel nightgown(now I would like any of those things, but I am not like my mom in that way). She wanted romantic gifts from him and it took him a while to understand that. So I got him into buying her pearls and other lovely things. Interestingly enough, I got some of those items from her jewelry box after she died. I haven't really worn them, but like the memory of how those gifts made her feel.
Again, the therapy for me to get over the sad spots is to keep busy, savor the wonderful and even crazy memories of the tough times, and to think of others. My daughter has a birthday in a week and I have some nice surprises for her that she won't expect. So I am focused on that for now.
myrosiedog, I hope that you will have a smooth transition into the holidays and find some extra joy this year!
