Last week my Aunt Kathi was in a serious car accident.
Rearended by a car going 60 mph, plowing her into the car ahead.
She was cut free and airlifted to a hospital.
Her recovery will be long.
The senseless massacre in Colorado.
The death of a co-worker on Friday from kidney and liver problems.
The continued conflict in Syria that affects friends and their families.
It's times like these when we really have to stop and count our blessings.
To remember all the good things in life.
I spent the morning baking.
Heart-shaped scones.Preheat oven to 425. Blend together 3 cups all purpose flour; 3 TBS sugar; 1 tsp baking soda; 1/2 tsp salt. Work in 6 TBS softened butter until mixture resembles fine meal; add in 1 lightly beaten egg and 3/4 cup buttermilk to form a dough; stir in 1/3 cup dried cranberries. Lightly flour your work surface. Pat dough to 3/4 inch thick and cut into rounds (or hearts). Brush tops with a little buttermilk and bake til golden.
Today, see if you can stretch your heart and expand your love so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily, but also to those who need it so much.
