Both girls were working on homework and dinner was in the oven so I tried to sneak and make some homemade cookies BY MYSELF before either one of them noticed. You see, when they participate, they make a big mess....
and, tonight, I just didn't want to deal with it. I am a tidy baker.

Not far into the process, I was "caught" by my youngest.
"Oh goodie! Cookies! I wanna help!"

It was at that moment that God softly reminded me...
"This is your daughter. You prayed and asked Me for her. Enjoy her."

I relinquished. I gave her the flour, the butter, the eggs. It went all over the counter. I smiled and soaked up the whole experience.
And then I thanked God for the reminder.
He has a sweet way of doing that.
