Title: Cookies!


I made cookies on Friday. I also said a lot of grateful prayers. In fact, my husband and I have been saying a lot of thankful prayers in the last few months. When I read the news headlines Friday morning that unemployment rose to a high of 6.7% last month, I could only give thanks. Our little family knows unemployment quite intimately. For approximately 7 months out of last year my husband was unemployed. That’s 100% for this household. It’s scary. It rocks your confidence. It’s easy to lose hope.

So as I read the article about unemployment, thinking about the many unemployed people who are foreclosing, scared, and homeless, I felt compelled to do a little something to say thanks to Matt and his new company. I baked a batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies and delivered them to the office. This may sound like a trivial response compared to the big issue at hand, but it was my way of expressing gratitude for life, employment, and even chocolate chip cookies.

    thanks for the shout out! Love this cookie photo by Alina, makes me want to bake something right now. And I am enjoying your blog – I also share an interest in travel, especially when I can combine that with food. 🙂
