"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."--Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet

A simple wish for you!

THREE WISHES ... By Mary Lund:

If I could have three wishes
and wishes did come true;
I would wish for Blessings,
to always follow you.

I would wish for laughter,
to fill your heart and home
and memories surround you
whenever you're alone.

Then I'd wish you patience,
to forgive what might go wrong
I'd wish for love and peace and joy
to follow all day long.

I'd wish for you good health,
friends and family galore
and when you have it all
I'd even wish you more…

I would wish for prayers,
to give back unto myself;
as long as you are happy,
I'd wish for nothing else.

If I could have my wishes,
and if wishes did come true;
I'd wish for years of happiness,
and I'd give them all to you.

For just to see contentment,
on your face and know you're fine;
would truly satisfy me,
and bring joy to this heart of mine.

Personal Notes:
Evela was more than just a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter ... she was a teacher, this makes me think of her! This is what I think she would pass to each of us if she could!

Always in our prayers!
