Oatmeal Cookies

A very good friend gave me one of her favorite cookbooks and I wanted to test the recipe for oatmeal cookies – my favorite.  So, I made the dough tonight.  For no reason.  No company coming.  No potluck to attend.  Just because.  After stirring up the batter I put it in the freezer.  And it felt so good to have a night of no obligation.  A night without deep reflection or sorting out thoughts.  A moment without questions. 

My days don’t always go like this – enjoyment minus saddness. 

I don’t think my friend could have ever predicted what her gift meant to me.
