Cascade Observations: Special Gifts

Though it’s only early December, I’ve already received two extraordinarily special gifts. The first gift arrived in the fall, when Jack O’ Lanterns still decorated the front steps.

A jar of strawberry jam, canned with love last spring, when its maker had just learned he had only months to live.
