Yesterday I made some yummy peanut butter cookies, they were good, but I’m still looking for that perfect recipe. I’m looking for a cookie that’s a little crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share, I’d love to try it!
Next week I’m going to try a recipe Bunny gave me last night. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
Story for Today – My good friend Diane emailed this little story to me today and I thought I’d share it with you.
When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now
and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made
breakfast after a long, hard day at work.
On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and
extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if
anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom
and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that
night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that
biscuit and eat every bite!
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom
apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he
said: "Honey, I love burned biscuits."
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he
really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your
Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides - a
little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"
Life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the
best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like
everyone else. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to
accept each others faults - and choosing to celebrate each others differences -
is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and
We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the
base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!
"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep it in
God Bless You...... Now, and Always....
So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just
