I am thankful for (fill in name) because….

I am thankful for my grandmother for all the meals she made while she was alive.  She always had 3-4 meats, several veges, all kinds of pies and cakes and much more.  The smell of breakfast cooking will remain with me all my life.  I’ve never tasted gravy as good as hers, but my cousin Jill almost has it down for which I am thankful.  My grandmother would wake up early to cook and go to bed late getting ready for the next day.  Oh, and her fried chicken was sooo good. 

So, my thanks goes to Mamma, Sarah Bonnie Murphy Smith (1915-2002)
