Tonight I’m sitting in my bedroom at my computer, listening to the ebb and flow of conversations outside my window as my daughter, son-in-law and their friends hang out in the garage and side yard. The sounds of road racing drift through my bedroom wall from the video games in the garage. Snippets of conversation, laughter, and an occasional slammed side gate testify to the gathering of good friends.

Add the delicious smell of barbecue wafting through my window and the promise of delicious ribs to come, and you have a combination that truly nourishes this mother’s heart and her stomach.
