I am very blessed to have one of the most genuinely giving and kind hearted Christian women I know for a mother. One of my favorite things about her is her happiness. She takes it everywhere she goes and shares it with everyone around her without even knowing she does it. I am so blessed that after 15 years of moving around Texas, I have the privilege of living just up the hill from Oma.
She has more talents than I can list. She is a wonderful cook. Wields a mean flyswatter when the grand-kids get out of hand, I love that about her! And, she makes amazing homemade jellies, preserves, and jams. Yesterday Logan and I helped her make plum jam and jelly.
Isn't that pretty!
And the best part is we got to have fresh heaven in a jar on our toast this morning for breakfast.
My favorite part of this specific batch of jam is that my mom picked the plums herself from a tree at my grandparents house in San Saba, TX. By the way, she climbed the plum tree!
