Granny on my shoulder
Sudie Crouch
Granny’s voice has been a familiar refrain throughout my life, and even more so now that she has passed away. There are many days where her words of wisdom echo in my head, giving me direction into whatever situation I am facing. Being able to call her for advice is something I sorely took for granted and it is something that I miss, oftentimes reaching for the phone with questions about what to substitute in a recipe, what to give Cole for a cough, or how to best handle a situation. Oftentimes, her words were full of sage counsel, as she offered instruction and guidance from her decades of experience. “Use cold water when making biscuits,” she would remind me. “Your dough will be tough if you don’t.”
