Cardinals (the bird, not the baseball team!), Anne Murray, and Butter Pecan Ice Cream. Three things that always remind me of my grandmother.
I find it fascinating how certain things, be it a song, a scent, a food (anything really), can trigger a memory or a thought of a loved one. Memories remind us that even though our loved ones may have passed, they will always be with us.
While Butter Pecan ice cream isn’t one of my favorites, I do enjoy the buttery taste and the crunch from the toasted pecans. I also appreciate the wonderful thoughts I have of my grandmother, while I eat a small bowl- for her.
