Unexpected The Moment

typed with black ribbon. on a 3 x 5 index card. (without blue lines). mom’s recipe. for homemade noodles. signed “Mom”. in black ink. we all have these, yes? how long ago was that? 40-45 years maybe? so that i could have a copy. because i asked. from college. (thus not, “Love Mom”—i might be embarrassed). making the noodles. on New Years Day. essentially egg noodles. i barely think. about mom. yet i know. she is close. the first bite however. and even now. in this moment. writing. i feel the liquid. in my eyes. rim full. i’d like to tell mom. about the noodles. more liquid. dropping. with memories. the taste. thank you mom—with love.

  1. This post is very meaningful and reminds me of my Mother’s wonderful chicken and noodles. I learned by watching and still make them for my family at Thanksgiving. This year my oldest daughter asked if she could make the noodles. A tradition transferred to the next generation. That’s what life and love is all about. I love the photo.
