A granddaughter baked cookies for her sick granny. She was shocked when this happened.

I took out some brightly-colored post-it notes from my desk drawer. With my thickest, black sharpie, I scribbled the words along with directional arrows across several post-its and stuck them all along the walls.

They read, “This way Granny! You can do it! You’re almost there! Just keep going!” The guiding beacon of the post-its worked, and Granny soon found her way.

But as days passed, Granny was looking frail, and we couldn’t get her to eat. We tried her favorite chicken and dumpling soup, but she couldn’t manage a swallow. We tried mushed peas, ice cream, and even liquid Boost. But Granny rejected them all with the saddest expression I’ve ever seen.

The cookies. How could I forget the cookies? I searched through Granny’s books and found it. Granny’s famous cookie recipe. With sweat, tears, and love, I managed to replicate the cookies. They smelled divine. I pulled them out of the oven and set them to cool on the counter. 10 minutes later I grabbed the spatula, so I could cool the cookies on wire racks.

But hold on. Something was different about these cookies. They were shaped like angels. Only, I hadn’t used my angel-shaped cookie cutter or any cookie cutter for that matter. These cookies should have been round.

Something inside me made me shudder, and I was covered in goosebumps. I shook off the weird feeling and gathered a plate of the cookies to bring to Granny’s bedroom. But by the time I got there, it was too late. Granny had passed peacefully in her sleep.

Now, I don’t know if you believe in miracles, (especially divine intervention by cookie), but something unexplainable happened that day. If anything, I think this was Granny’s last gift to me. This was her sign that she was now an angel, watching over us.

Since nobody could make Granny’s cookies like she could, she had to add her finishing touch.

Made from scratch, with love.

Not a dry eye in the house…

Grandchildren. How do you know if you’ve helped raised them right?

When the time comes, they will show you how much they valued all of the little (and big) things that you taught them over the years.

And in your time of need, they will be there for you. Just like you were for them.
