Editor’s note: Kevin Williams, Amish Cook editor, is writing this week’s column for Gloria Yoder.
I wanted to reach out to readers this week in place of Gloria. Gloria and two of her children were involved in a car accident last week. I am happy to report that they are OK, just shaken up and bruised up a bit. Another passenger, a woman who goes to Gloria’s church, suffered some broken bones.
While Gloria’s church is a horse and buggy church, it is not uncommon to hire non-Amish drivers for errands into town. Gloria called it a “miracle” no one was killed and it does sound like a serious car wreck. Gloria will fill you in more on it.
Having been in a car accident or two myself over the years, one serious, I know how much it shakes you up mentally and physically so I told her to take a break for a week or two from the column. As it happens, with the election looming I know many print newspapers will be scarce on space anyway for the next week or two and might not be able to run the column anyway.
So, thank you for your well wishes and prayers. If anyone wishes to send a card or good cheer to Gloria, her address is Gloria Yoder, 10510 E. 350th Ave., Flat Rock, IL 62427. I know hearing from you would give her a lift.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I’d share a recipe for a pumpkin pie that Gloria shared a couple of years ago in her column. Sounds delicious. Everyone take care and Gloria will be checking back in soon!
