An Alice story

My mother-in-law loved sweets.  Her favorite treat was ice cream, which she always had in the freezer, a trait her son inherited.  But she wasn't picky. She loved cookies, brownies, sugary delights of all kinds.

A good friend of Alice's told us a tale from a few weeks before Alice died. They had gone for a walk through the assisted living facility and in the sitting room there was a plate with two brownies on it.  Alice took a look at the plate and smiled up at her friend.  "I'll eat one if you'll eat one," she smiled.

And so they did.  Women after my own heart.
