As I can recall, was when I first began to bake in the 7th grade in Home-Economics class. Being the eldest child in a family of 10 kids, as soon as I got to know what was required in the baking process, the first thing I learned to make was "Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins", my Dad's favorite. Every now and then he would ask me to bake them for him and proudly I would because he was a hard working man, raising his 10 kids without assistance nor complaints. Did it on his own, never complaining, never heard him say anything negative about having to work to support his family, just working daily. Seldom would he ask for anything, but every once in awhile, it was those cookies. Sometimes, I would surprise him and slip some in his lunch bag, just to let him know, he was loved and appreciated. He's gone now, but I still have those memories about how the cookies would put a little smile on his face. I miss you, Forever in my heart.

Thank you so much for sharing such a sweet memory. I always found that baking someones favorite cookies or other goodies without them asking gives you a good feeling. It comes from the heart.
