There are times when ordinary events produce beautiful thoughts. I made cookies and I dropped one. I was struck by the way the cookie broke so I took a picture and then I wrote a little poem.
I made my friend cookies today.
She needs some extra love.
I don’t know what to say.
May be cookies will ease the pain.
I dropped the plate
I tried. I tried. I tried
To put the pieces back together.
I gave my friend a shattered cookie today
And a story about my failed attempt
To ease her pain.
She is hurting in a way
Only You can heal.
