My grandmother Alice Simmons Stewart Pollard was the most amazing woman, and here I am 5 years later and I miss her so very much.
I remember well the lessons I learned in her kitchen. You see my parents divorced when I was young and I spent a good chunk of time in her kitchen.
She taught me when things are at the darkest, there is a light a coming.
She taught me to be thankful for what I do have.
She taught me to be a smart shopper.
She taught me the importance of family ties.
She taught me how to make the best Toads in the Hole.
I will forever be thankful for the amazing lessons I learned from this amazing grandmother. I pray you are resting in peace.
