Sometimes the best conversations come when you are doing things together. The talking isn't forced. You’re not looking face to face so there is no intimidation. You don’t feel like you are on the spot. Instead there is a nice flow of word sharing as you go about the task.
I just remember so well those times were the most precious to me growing up. Chatting about whatever was on my mind while making biscuits with my grandmother were the times I got to know her best.
Now I get to have those special times with my grandchildren doing crafts or teaching them how to sew, and Mimi toast will be a smell that they will remember. It sounds silly, toast having a smell, but the butter melting as the bread browns under the broiler has an aroma that they will remember.
I find out what is on their minds. I get to know what makes them happy, what is bothering them, and their views on life.
The smell of biscuits or horse poop is a delight because it makes me think of my family.
When I write, I try to pull from those moments to give others the desire not to let times like these to slip from their life.
Those Saturdays were special between father and daughter. We had time to talk riding along side by side on the country roads. Talk of birds, trees, how water rolls over the rocks in streams, and some important thoughts during the ride would tumble out to discuss. In Dad’s wisdom he knew that you needed to let conversation breath and some things would “just happen” if not forced. Even today the smell of horse poop will instantly make all the worries in my world disappear.
