Welcome Back, Chocolate Chip Cookies!

We have some nice new neighbors across the street from us, and we have gotten to know them better. The other day, they dropped by with a container full of delicious Italian meatballs, which turned out to be absolutely fabulous.

I wanted to reciprocate, and realized that I hadn’t made chocolate chip cookies since Dad passed on. He had loved my cookies and I always made them for him. After he died, I stopped making them; it made me too sad.

But after the gift of the meatballs, I decided that it was time to make cookies again. I made a huge batch of them,  remembering how much I loved to make them. I enjoy baking, and it gives me a lot of pleasure to make baked goods for family and friends. So I loaded up a container full of cookies for our neighbors as a thank-you.

That broke the spell. I now know that I can bake again, and, if Dad were here he would approve. I am slowly realizing that the things that once brought me joy can still bring me joy.

And you know what? They taste just as good as I remembered.
