A CUTE COOKIE STORY



Molly's barking brought me to the front door and there was our neighbor boy, Dante (age 10).  He had a gift in his hand for me.  It's a little rock display that has a stand on the back to sit up.  A cross, and lots of special words.  (Isn't that sweet...I love it)


Yesterday I made sugar cookies and frosted them with some leftover canned coconut pecan and vanilla frosting.  I put a picture of them on facebook.   After I took the gift from Dante and invited him in, he said  "I saw your cookies on fb".  "Well, what a coincidence"  I replied, " I just happened to have some for you."

I'm sure he didn't come over for cookies, but I had to smile as he left grinning from ear to ear.

That's why I always have cookies in the cookie jar or in the freezer.  You never know when you can bring a smile with a cookie.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!
