"Sha! Don't Tell!"

Sha! Don't Tell!

Grandma was the best baker, bargain shopper, and balabusta (housekeeper) I knew. Her hands controlled a feather duster, a rolling pin, and fed me cookies, all while telling stories laden with secrets, past and present. Her heavily accented English frequently slid into Yiddish, especially with her pet endearment, "mamela" (little mother). She left her voice and stories permanently rooted in my head and heart.
