Christmas Cookies

Wow...only nine days until Christmas. I'm getting giddy! My kids never let me forget how much closer we get to the big day every morning as they move the little candy cane across our festive calendar.

Recently, a generous group of ladies got together and baked cookies for the local boys' group home. What a wonderful way to wrap a mother's love in home baking; a treat these boys don't experience often.

I will leave you with one more Christmas Cookie recipe as we head into the last few prep days before we enjoy family, friends and the celebration to come.

If you'd like to have a Christmas story tug at your heart strings, go here to read how a little boy found hope and kindness over sixty years ago.

Peace. Be kind to another today.
