Gramma’s Pearl Soup and Grampa’s Mango Smile

By Wendy Picken

This is story of hopes and dreams and the seasons of life.
What’s Pearl Soup? It’s a very special soup.
Gramma tells me its made with “pearls that come from
her heart and she stirs in all her hopes and dreams for me…”

“It’s light hearted, but the message of ‘no matter what
happens I’ll always love you’ is pretty universal
— it’s what we all want.”  – Wendy Picken
