Shhhhh....Mommy's Baking...

I just spent a SILENT hour in the kitchen...

I was alone...

Rolling out pie crusts, mixing up fillings, baking...

Overcome with thoughts of Mam-ma and family...

...Christmas music playing gently in the background.

(deep sigh)

It was divine!

Down here in Bolivia I was doing the same, listening to my Christmas CD's, marveling at the Christmas tree that made it in our container, and making my first pie crusts. no quick trips to wal-mart to the freezer section, no just hours of pouring over my recipe books and building up the courage to try :) and our teammates said it was worth the courage, our pumpkin, pecan, and chocolate chip pies all turned out great. it's the little things that God blesses us with amidst the being far from home that makes it all worth while. God bless you and yours this holiday season.
