When I was a kid, my mom used to make chocolate chip cookies and when we heard the mixer whirring away, we all kind of gravitated to the kitchen. Impatient with waiting the seven minutes for the dough to cook, we armed ourselves with the biggest spoons we could find and filled them with raw cookie dough. Not once did any of us get food poisoning from the raw eggs--and according to my memories (which at best are cracked lenses to my past) chocolate chip cookies were always the byproduct of a rainy day.
It's raining tonight and the rain always reminds me of my mom and her chocolate chip cookies.
Rainy days are the best days.
I'm grateful tonight for chocolate and rain.
What are you grateful for today?
