  7. Looking back on our childhoods many of us will remember our mothers making chicken soup for us when we were sick. Those are some great memories. Any time that we would get sick mom was off to the kitchen to start a pot of chicken soup. Memories of childhood are precious for most of us and the smell of chicken soup wafting through the house warms us to our very core. I had pneumonia recently and yearned for a bowl of mom's chicken soup, so when I recovered and my daughter got sick I was at the stove preparing a pot of chicken noodle soup. If you would like to share your fondest memory place it under the comment section and share with others.
