A John Ratliff family story repeated millions of times all over the world, but each time, a memory to cherish.

Making Cookies

Smiling and laughing,

they work together,

mother and daughter,

making cookies.

As I watch them,

my mind’s eye drifts back to a little kitchen in the French countryside.

Marie is the young apprentice

being supervised by the older expert.

Smiling and laughing,

they work together,

mother and daughter,

making cookies.

Traditions get past down

one generation at a time.

The natural cycles are eternally renewed again and again.

We are often so focused on the future, always looking forward to the next big thing, that we forget to cherish all that we have, all that we are.

Right here.

Right now.

For you see, it all goes by so very fast.

In the blink of an eye.

In the blink of an eye.
