When I have a cold the thing I love most, other than the excuse to sit and read when I'm awake, is my mom's concoction of honey, vinegar and hot water. I think she started giving it to me in my bottle when I was a baby (in the days when they didn't know not to give babies honey). My cousins like it too, so I assume that my grandmother gave it to my mom when she was sick as a child too.
Utah Dad and my kids can't stand honey and vinegar. Utah Dad forbids me to come near him while I'm drinking it. But it just makes me feel better. And it makes me think of my mom, who is really very fantastic. She amazes me.
So today I'm just very very thankful for my mom.
And I'm thankful for my grandma too. Isn't she so cute?!
