THIS IS MY 1ST.ENTRY ON VERY BEST BAKING.I LEARNED TO BAKE ONE DAY BY MYSELF.MY MOM WAS A SINGLE MOM,I WAS HOME ALONE.I KNOW I PROBABLY SHOULD NOT HAVE USED THE OVEN, ALONE. I KNOW.., MY BEST FRIEND SAID HIS MOM WOULD HAVE FRESH BAKED COOKIES FOR HIM WHEN HE CAME HOME EVERYDAY,KIND OF MADE ME FEEL SAD.MY MOM WAS THE BEST, SHE WORKED SO HARD.I DECIDED TO MAKE MY OWN.THE FIRST BATCH STUNK,I'M TALKING REALLY BAD.THE BIRDS DID NOT EVEN EAT THEM.I THINK I OVER DID IT ON THE BAKING SODA. I TOLD MY FRIEND AT SCHOOL.HE TOLD ME I WAS ALWAYS WELCOMED THERE,ANYONE COULD COME OVER.SO ONE RAINY DAY I WENT OVER,SO GLAD I DID, IT SMELLED HEAVENLY.HIS MOM WAS SO NICE,SHE USE TO BE A HOME EC. TEACHER, REAL PRETTY TOO. SHE HELPED US OUT WITH HOMEWORK. SHE TAUGHT ME TO MAKE COOKIES.THEY CAME OUT GREAT.THE FIRST DAY I MADE THEM , I PUT A PLATE OUT FOR MY MOM.SHE WAS SO SURPRISED, SHE CRIED.5YRS.LATER MY MOM DIED. IT BROKE MY HEART.IT WAS JUST ME.THEN THERE WAS A KNOCK ON MY DOOR,I DID NOT WANT TO SEE ANYONE, LATER I CHECKED THE DOOR, I FOUND A TRAY OF COOKIES WRAPPED WITH A NOTE.IT WAS FROM MY OLD BUDDY AND HIS MOM.DAM , DID THAT TOUCH MY HEART.WE ARE STILL FRIENDS.EVERY MONTH FOR MANY YEARS I GET A PLATE OF COOKIES ON THE TABLE ON THE PORCH.I THANK GOD FOR MY FRIEND AND HIS MOM,IT IS GREAT TO HAVE SUCH CARING PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A CARING PERSON IN THEIR LIVES OR EVEN BETTER ,THAT YOU ARE THAT CARING PERSON.TODAY IS THE ANNIVERSARY OF MY MOM GOING TO HEAVEN.AND YES,AS I'AM WRITING THIS, I'AM EATING THE COOKIES.IT LESSENS THE PAIN.MAYBE THIS CAN BE YOUR DAY TO BE THAT CARING PERSON.I WORK WITH ILL PEOPLE EVERYDAY, IT LESSENS THE PAIN KNOWING I'AM HELPING IN SOME SMALL WAY.

What a beautiful story! I'm sorry about your mom. It's obvious someone appreciated your thoughtfulness, & is now repaying you! Take care.

God Bless you, Hunter. You have a GREAT friend and thanks for sharing your story with us. It is very touching. Glad that angels are looking after you! Hang onto this friend and his mom - they've been wonderful. They don't replace your own mom, but you found a wonderful "second family" in them. Please post a story again. Let us know how you are doing. God Bless & Hugs, Judy

Hunter, welcome to vbb. It's nice to know that there are bakers like you. I too lost my mom--4 years ago. The thoughts linger in your memory box, but friends like you have are very very special, since they help ease the pain and bring back the joyous moments that tied you all together. Keep on baking!!

i was reading your story again, it touched me.your title is "just me and my cookies".,but it is not , someone is watching over you,they never forgot you. that in itself is wonderful.everyone being so busy, so you must be important to these people.i made some cookies for the old couple next door after reading your story.my 12yr. old son has a friend that walks all over the place.he is always hungry. i give him some food to take with him.i asked my son, if he was homeless, he said the bus picks him up in front of a house.he never talks about his family.i feel bad for him.

What a nice story. I just love this site. I
look forward to reading this every day. I always feel better after I read it. I read your 2nd
posting first and it reminded me of my own pain when I lost my mom. It will get better in time. Thankyou for your story.
