Cookies Anyone?

Life lesson
by Barbara Miers

"What the heck is wrong with you? Don't you realize there are cookies to be had here? All rules are off if cookies are involved, do you hear me? Null and void, everyone knows that. Now come with me, I'm doing you a favor here."

Life lessons can occur at an early age. This was the interpretation of a savy 4 year old on life, to her younger sister, when it came to the matter of cookies. It made me laugh and wonder what are the cookies in my life that null and void the rules?

What am I willing to give up for temporary pleasure? What "rules" will I toss aside for a taste of something sweet? Esau gave up "his birthright" for a bowl of stew. Are my physical appetities dictating my emotional responses? Why do I turn to food for comfort? Will I violate my future health for a moment of delight? Definitely Food for Thought!

You made me think. Good lesson from a 4 yr old. I find I learn more from my son, than I ever did in college. :)

Hey Daisy - I finally found this post. Those cookies look good!
