It's Here!!! CJN Article about Mom

Last January 31st, 2012 I had the pleasure of meeting Carolyn Blackman of the Canadian Jewish News - to talk about Mom and her recipes.  I went into our meeting with no expectations, and really enjoyed our visit.

This morning a friend emailed me that she read Carolyn's article in the CJN - out today.  I immediately stumbled (I am not the most techno-savvy gal around) and found the article (CJN - go to page 38).

I read it and started to cry.  I am starting to cry as I write this!  Why the tears?  Because every article and post about my mother returns her to who she was - a vibrant, beautiful and treasured daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.  If you take nothing more away from my blog, please let it be that, and let that be her legacy.  

Thank you Carolyn - it is a beautiful article - for helping to memorialize Carol Joy Reiter.  I am forever grateful.

    What a beautiful story to honor your beautiful mother Naomi. I have had the privilege of actually reading your mother's cookbook with you while we sat at your kitchen table. It was wonderful to hear the stories and memories that your shared with me that evening. Your mother would be so pleased to know that you are continuing her traditions and starting new memories of family for your girls to carry on.

    1. Thanks so much Vi! It means a lot, especially since you know Mom when she was well <3
