I remember this beautiful story and s0 worthy of re-reading! Thanks Charm, for bringing it back. Cookies always remind me of the wonderful little Cookie Lady who came to our Rad Room where my son would go for his treatments. She always came and talked to everyone there and offered them cookies. Those going through Rad had their own swallowing and painful issues and couldn't eat cookies but it was a wonderful gesture all the same and so appreciated by those that could appreciate the cookies and the compassion and understand she served along with the cookies. Yay! for cookies!
