“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” (Quoted from the film Forrest Gump.)
Life seldom if ever turns out the way you imagine it will. Growing up, my mom and I often shared a box of Russell Stover chocolates. I bought my mom a box a couple days ago, wondering if it would be her last.
She is loosing her battle with breast cancer. It’s progressing very quickly now and there’s nothing more the Doc’s can do but try to ease her pain. I will be taking a hiatus from posting new recipes for the time being so I can spend time with her and my family. So sorry to bring such sad news but I wanted my readers to know the ‘why’ behind my absence. Life is hard sometimes and I’m just keepin’ it real. Church members have been extraordinary in their support. (On the upside I’ve got some great new recipes I will be sharing sometime in the near future.) Thanks for understanding everyone! ~Emily
