“I am thankful for my mema because she cooks for the whole family. At Thanksgiving, we have turkey that makes your taste buds say, “Horray!” My mema cooks string beans with bacon grease that brings out flavors which make you feel you are in imaginary land. Oh, her sweet potato pie is creamy goodness! My mema still presses through when she is in pain. She is such a good provider for us.”
