The Resurrection of a Sweet Memory

Finding the balance between looking back, living today and moving forward develops along with the wisdom of age.

Grandma’s world was consistent, a solid rock safely perched above the swiftly flowing currents of life. Grandma Maggie taught me the art of contentment, the appreciation of happiness found in simplicity. The joy of ordinary treasures.

I wasn’t paying attention. Opportunity was missed.

Wisdom often arrives a little too late. Better late than never I suppose

Tammy Hader has no writer’s pedigree. With a BBA in accounting from Wichita State University, numbers are her history. The CPA exam was passed, because that’s what accountants are supposed to do, and thirty years later her accounting life ended with the desire to journey down a different career path. The compass turned toward words to create a new legacy beyond spreadsheets. Her nostalgic writing reflects on the past to explain the present and shine into the future the light of lessons learned. Growing up in a small Midwestern town, influenced by relationships, choices, consequences, and situations, her life is not unique. In her stories, you will recognize reflections of your own past, understand how you arrived at today’s version of you and gaze with her across the bridge into the future.

  1. I love this story Tammy! Your articulation of the detail in Grandma Maggie’s home was so warm and inviting. I want some peach cobbler. When my Grandma Nory was alive – I called her one day to ask her for two recipes as I just moved out of my mother’s home and wanted to impress my then boyfriend. I’m so glad I did because I use them to this day and think of the memories we made. This story brings those feels back to me. And I adore them. Thank you for today’s dose of Joy.

  2. Beautiful story of a beloved grandmother and the ways she consistently showed her love, surrounded you in safety, lived her life simply, and made delicious peach cobbler. I enjoyed reading this as it brought to my mind good memories of my Grandma Hope and her burnt, thin chocolate chip cookies, warm, real hugs, and the lifeline her loving presence continued to be until she passed away when I was in graduate school. She lives in me every time I bake chocolate chip cookies, and in the self-compassion to forgive myself anytime I burn the toast, the pancakes or the cookies. :) She also lives on in the consistent loving kindness I notice I bravely express to many other people and the warm, real hugs I give to those who are open to receiving them.

    Thank you for sharing this in such a rich way that I could access my own Grandma Hope. Thank you for love lives on through those who have loved us well.

    • Such beautiful words you have written. Thank you for sharing your Grandma Hope and her burnt cookies with me. I enjoy hearing about the memories others experience upon reading my stories. We often have more in common with others than we think we do.

  3. Tammy – Recipe, please!

    What a wonderful story. Reminded me of my mom’s pink baking dish, which i still have and refuse to use for fear of breaking it.

    You had me at “Lincoln Street.” That’s the name of the street where I grew up.
