We moved here seven years a go after Mom passed over and we couldnt keep both houses and Brother Thomas said lets go-o and off we flew we sold the old house and moved! He had a disability (M.S) but we moved any way... to him it was not a disability and to this day it is amazing how he lived with this with such grace ...
Welcome to my Beautiful life in N.Michigan! it was my dream always to live here and here i am in the middle of GOD,S Country! if it wasnt for my Brother and hero i wouldnt be here! We moved here seven years a go after Mom passed over and we couldnt keep both houses and Brother Thomas said lets go-o and off we flew we sold the old house and moved! He had a disability (M.S) but we moved any way... to him it was not a disability and to this day it is amazing how he lived with this with such grace well three years a go he passed over and suddenly from Sepsis and i was devastated cause he was my Hero and best friend and i didnt know how i could go on with out him! He was my rock but GOD pulled me up and out and said i could do this on my own and here i am and a day doesnt go by i don,t think of my brother and know he is here whether its the red tailed hawk flying over me or a butterfly that wont leave me alone He is here... he keeps me going along with the love of GOD and i am Grateful i asked and received grace to go on and can do what the Creator wants to do with my life and i never know what i will be up to next .... but its been one heck of a Great flight in this path and loving and being with the people who are down and out is my job now before i was a volunteer @ the local nursing home and being with the dying and sad people but needed to move on but They helped me also! Im solo now but never alone and on my flight to better my self and to be Healthy and Holy... Thats what we are all meant to be... Fly with me on the journey of our lives....

Hey Bonnie!

Here’s the definition of lotus root on Wikepedia: “Crunchy, delicate flavored, lotus root is an edible rhizome (root) of lotus plant. Since ancient times, lotus plant has been held in high esteem in the oriental regions, especially in Chinese and Japanese cultures. Almost all the parts of the plant: root, young flower stalks, and seeds are being employed in the cuisine.”

So… yup, it’s Asian food…and it’s delicious and I recommend it highly! I dipped it in tempura batter and made tempura out of it! Delish!
Oooh, I love Greek stuffed Grape leaves and spinach pie, too! That’s awesome that you can make that!

Thanks….for the compliments… I think that you’re awesome, and I am so glad I met you too!
