Clare's last week as hostess of Tuesday Treasures and I thought I'd show you this wonderful treasure.This is
My dear Mother in Law, Maria or Nonna as we all call her. I am truly blessed to have her in my life.
Nonna lost her mother at just 5 years of age, left school at 10 to care for her family, then married Salvatore in Sicily at 14, had her first baby (the bloke) at 15 and another six babies over the next 20 years.
She works tirelessly often feeding up to 30 people for Sunday night family dinners, cooking the best pasta in the world. She can put the crankiest baby to sleep in moments and always, always has a kind word for everyone.
She does all this with a smile on her face and love in her heart.
She is a true treasure and I love her to bits.
