Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

A ward member sent me some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies today on a paper plate from Costco (the white one with green and red flowery stuff), and in a ziploc bag.  I saw it before I knew where it came from, so it obviously brought tears to my eyes, more than a few.  It made me think of mom and an almost overflowing silver bowl of cookie dough, and at least 2 of her kids right there next to her ready to burn their tongues on the cookies the moment they came out of the oven.  What I love about that is that we were RIGHT THERE close to her.  And most certainly we were talking to her, maybe cracking some jokes old or new, and she just patiently kept spooning out the dough and enjoying being with us.
