Carrot Raisin Celery Salad

I really like carrot raisin salad.  I usually add more vegan mayonnaise and raisins..I like mine really creamy with lots of raisins !!!!  Sometimes I am lazy and cut up baby carrots instead of shredding carrots.  It looks kinda weird, but the flavor is still good !!


2 cups shredded or chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup raisins
1 tsp dried parsley
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 to 2 Tbsp sugar
2 to 3 Tbsp almond milk


Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.  

To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 (GNT)

Unusual post


I have never formally introduced name is Denise.  This is an unusual post....I believe in the power of prayer and I am requesting prayers for my mom, Marie.   We were up visiting my parents and had to take mom to the ER yesterday.  She had emergency brain surgery to remove what the doctor said was a significant amount of blood on her brain.  Thankfully she made it through surgery.  She is in icu and the next 24hrs are critical.  Then they said the next week could be up and down.  She could have good days and bad days.  They are trying to prevent any infections or pneomonia.  I really appreciate all prayers for her...I am hoping and praying she has a speedy recovery and short physical therapy.  Thank you for all the prayers.

Sincerely denise
