Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other day our six-year-old granddaughter was at our home and we made homemade chocolate chip cookies together. A normal kitchen was transformed into a wonderland of fun and laugher. Butter, then sugar, and an egg that actually didn’t drop on the floor made its way into the bowl of delight. Her brother, not to be outdone, rushed into the room pushed his way onto the stepladder and added the salt and flour. Dough and flour grew wings and escaped out of the bowl as the mixer made round after round. I had forgotten how much fun it was just to share the simplest joys.

It brought me back to the days when I was about six and I was standing on a step chair putting baby bottles into the pan on the stove to sterilize them. I was important that day. I was grown up and a big help to mommy.

Tonight I was an engineer to our other two grandchildren as we designed and built an airplane, that didn’t fall a part, and fancy pink car. Lego’s a grandma’s best friend.

What is it about children?

They can bring laughter to any situation if a heart is willing to open up and let them in.

Whether we show up as a mentor, friend, chef, carpenter, engineer, mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, or grandpa, we can be the most important ingredient in their batter of life.

Somehow as we share Christmas with the little child in our life, I pray we can make homemade chocolate chip cookies or do something that will make them feel that they are important that they are doing something to be a big help.

Children can do without the next best gadget or toy but they cannot do without you.

Give yourself the best gift and share Christmas with a child!
