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.
