Admiring God’s work easy in autumn 

I love all of the seasons, but fall is my favorite. I can almost smell the fried potatoes and onions, and the creamed tomatoes Mom cooked for us when the weather got cooler.

We used to come home from school to the smell of homemade bread and cinnamon rolls.

Later, after I got married and had six children, I made the same kinds of baked goodies for them.

When my children were growing up, they had pet turkeys. The turkeys would wait at the end of the lane for the children to come home on the school bus. They would peck at the children all the way home. We dressed one for Thanksgiving that year, and sold the rest.

After my husband passed away 34 years ago, and the children were on their own, I moved to my hometown from the country.
