    I love your mom. :)

    How about posting that recipe?!

    Oh, Katrina, what a post! I was very recently able to help someone close to me financially only because I had a savings. But even though I kind of disagreed with the orginal post, I realized you meant *obsessing* about savings and not being willing to see the big picture, and your advice to not get caught up in that is very wise advice. So don’t be too hard on yourself :)

    Love the HP reference.

    Katrina, I think those cookies are the only reason you and I have been friends for so long. I’m totally joking, of course… can you please have some on hand next time I visit???

    Danielle, I’m sorry to say that it won’t matter if she posts the recipe or not. Even if you followed the recipe to the letter, those cookies would still not taste as good as when Aunt Judy makes them. I figure she must spit in them or something :)

      Teri & Danielle,
      I am planning to post the recipe and pictures. I’ve decided to give it another go, but Danielle, Teri is right. ONLY my mom can successfully make these cookies. They never turn out for anyone else. (I thought it was her oven, but she made them for me in PNG with perfect results. GRRR.)

    I think you made some good points in your first article. It is really easy to get wrapped up in our savings accounts and put our faith there. I wholeheartedly agree that we need more of a focus on giving rather than saving. I also like how you were brave enough to post a slight shift in perspective. It’s all about balance, right? (and not the balance in your savings account, lol).

      Yes, balance, the ever-elusive! I think we should SAVE to GIVE rather than SAVE to HAVE. I guess that is what it all boils down to. Thanks for reading. :)
