The Sisters

I belong to a woman's group that we have called the sisters.
We are not true sisters but are sisters of the heart. We try to meet monthly
at one of our houses. We are a very eclectic group but some how
it really works. There is respect and kindness always. There is at least
another 6 people that couldn't make it this time.
So last night was my turn I made lasagna and everyone else brought a
a dish to share. Which is always so yummy! I also made a dessert it came out pretty good. So
I will share it.
Pumpkin Trifle
2 boxes of pumpkin instant Jell-O add 3 cups of milk and I whipped in 4oz of
mascarpone cheese. While waiting for the pudding to set up
I chunked up a family size pound cake.
then layer cake, pudding, whipped cream, until you use up your pudding and cake
I used only one tub of whipped topping I suggest 2 tubs.
then I grated the white chocolate bar on the top.

Ok this is a very bad picture this is after everyone had their fill
because I forgot to take a picture before. It is light and lovely
and I will make it again.
One of the things we do at the closing of our get together is pass a basket
around. We put a 1.00 in and tell what we are thankful for. It is such a great time
to share. What I am thankful for is David had a great Dr's appointment
in Boston and we were told finally that his transplant is a complete success!
I am also thankful for this group of women who came and raked our yard and put in our firewood  when
David was in the hospital and checked in to see if there was anything they could do for us.
At Christmas we donate the money to a charity of choice. Last year they donated it in
my husband's name. Tell me what your thankful for:)

This has been a difficult week for us here, Cindy. Our son-in-law's father passed away unexpectedly on Sunday morning. He was only 59. So - this is a week in which we have been very aware of and grateful for our own good health.

It sounds like you are part of a really good, supportive group. That is such a blessing!

All different ages--that is great. You can keep up with the newest things from the youngers and they certainly can learn a lot of you Seniors. What a blessing has come into your life with David's complete success! I am thankful for that!!

Well among many things, I am grateful for posts like this. They make us take some time out of our busy lives and think about what really matters in this world. Good friendships, abundant food, good news about your husband, helpful sisters, and simple pleasures of fellowship with other women.
We are so lucky to have each other.
