“SHE FELT VALUED AGAIN.  Mom was a homemaker on the family farm her entire life.  Every year at harvest she would cook her famous chili recipe.  Everyone looked forward to it.  On one of Mom’s hard days, the Kitchen Manager asked if she would like to help prepare the chili recipe for the Family Council meeting.  Not much business was discussed that day as everyone couldn’t stop complimenting Mom on her chili.”
