Thank you

I have been meaning to write a "thank-you" post to all of you for a few days now, but it seems time has become funky around here and I have lost track of days, and even hours....I guess the passage of time during grief isn't meant to be normal or easy. But nonetheless, I need to send out a hefty thank you to all of you that have sent me their condolences and warm energy. It's amazing to get love from all corners of the world. It truly helps.

I won't blog more about my mom beyond this post. I know people don't come to these types of blogs to read about sadness. We all have it in our own lives on a daily basis, and I don't want to burden my readers with my own sadness. This is meant to be a fun vegan inspired blog, and I will keep it that way after this.

My Mom died Aug. 15, the same day we learned about her having brain cancer. This summer had been a true struggle for her, with so much suffering and pain. My family has been on guard for the last few months because of her illnesses, but we never suspected her life would end like it did, and as quickly as it did. Reality has slammed me up against a wall.

I'll be back.

In happier times, with the grandkids, 2005

That photo with your mom makes me want to cry. She's such a beautiful lady. Looks just like the sterotypical grandma. Your children are totally captivated by her story telling. It's very sad that her life was cut short. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Don't worry about posting about her. I like to hear about people's lives far more than the food they make.

I know this is a difficult time but don't forget to take care of yourself.

Sending you big big hugs.
Thank you for being so open with all of us, Brooke - I always enjoy reading about family members; and your mother looks and sounds like she was quite a spectacular woman.

Take care, cherish your fondest memories of your mother, and blog when you can. Your faithful readers will be here waiting :0)
Aw, Brooke, your mother's passing must have been such a shock to you and your family- nobody deserves that. Please take all the time you need to grieve- and know that this is your blog and you can write (or not write) about anything you damn well please! Hugs to you.
What a beautiful photo. I know your memories of such a wonderful mom and grandmother will comfort you. Take care.
Hi Brooke, to answer your question, I use McCormick Season All Seasoned Salt. I do hope you try the recipe because it is so phenominally delicious.
Hi Brooke, I'm saddened to hear of your loss. The photo of your mom and kids moves me to tears... Please take care, I'll be thinking about you.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Brooke. I lost my own father a few months ago, suddenly, and I understand the loss you are experiencing. I wish I could help ease your pain, but know that day by day you will be able to think less of losing her and more of the wonderful time you had loving her.
Brooke, I am so sorry to hear about your Mum. Lots of hugs from me. Take care.
