Comfort Cookies

As you know, I love cookies.  And I love colors.  And I love giving colorful cookies. 
You may think of giving cookies when you're throwing a birthday party or baby shower or celebrating something special.  But I also think of cookies when I don't have the words to say. 
A friend of mine recently lost someone very dear to her.  And my heart hurt for her.  I'm not good with words when it comes to tough situations.  I have a great shoulder to cry on, but I'm not so eloquent when it comes to saying the best words to comfort.   But I know what I can do, I can make cookies.  And I know my cookies make people smile.  So, when the question came up of what we should do for our friend, I said - I'll make cookies!  Now, I know that cookies can't make everything better, but if my cookies provide a smile, even if only for a moment, during a time of grief, then my purpose was accomplished.
So, I hope that these cookies made her smile...because I know I loved decorating them!!  Ok, enough of the Debbie Downer are the cookies.
I did a combo of flowers and paisleys.  In fun colors, of course.

Yup, you guessed it, these are my favorites.

To this family, I love you guys and hope the cookies brightened your day.

Even in tough situations, think cookies.
