There is only one box of cookies that I am mailing out this Christmas.
They are going to a special family that I have had on my heart and in my prayers since they lost their son on September 1 of this year.
This hit me close to home.
I can only imagine the devastation felt, and how difficult the holidays must seem to all of the parents, spouses, children, and friends who are trying to make their way through loss at this time of year.
You can better believe that I am counting my blessings.
There are a lot of terrible things that happen here at home and around the world, and I sure wish this enchanted oven had a really big magic wand to make it all better. In a small gesture of support, I made some cookies that I infused with lots of love and prayers.
I am trying to take Mother Teresa's advice:
"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love".
Would you like to join me in a small act of love?
