I have the most amazing co-workers. They are fun, funny, light hearted (most of the time) and easy to work with. Three of them are born again Christians; two of them are from my church; one of them has been a friend since we were wee little thangs.
This one friend/co-worker regularly has me coming up to her desk saying, “Amaaaaanda??? Do you have any chocoooolate?” You see, if I bring snacks or candy or chocolate to work, I would snarf them down within that very
day afternoon hour. So I don’t bring anything besides my lunch. Then I eat my lunch and kick myself for not bringing any dessert or treat, thus my bugging Amanda. Sometimes she comes through, aaaand sometimes I have run her completely out of chocolate, so she can’t help me.
Well, today, she came through…BIG TIME. She said there would be a treat at 2:00. I was like a little kid, clapping and smiling and greatly anticipating a “treat.” (Yes, ’tis a sad state of affairs I’m in.) Back comes Amanda to my desk with a paper plate covering another paper plate with a surprise inside. I leefted the top plate and peered in, and what do my wondering eyes behold?! Two freshly baked, warm and crunchy and gooey chocolate chip cookies. Yes, this co-worker of mine had brought in cookie dough and baked these delightful morsels in the break room’s toaster oven.
I ooed and aaaahed and totally lost myself in those cookies for the few seconds it took to eat them. Yes, what a blessing it is to have a co-worker/friend who makes you homemade cookies at work. 🙂
