Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mmmmmmmm the smell of chocolate chip cookies! She taste tears in her mouth, from the cries of why? Poor baby only wanted to play with her mother, not to be yelled at for just standing in your presence. Her mother was baking cookies; this is supposed to be a scene of love. She was only longing for her mother's affection. All children just want to feel the warmth of loving arms being wrapped around their little bodies. Whispers of, mommy I love you, as they are being kissed on the forehead after a good night prayer.
This little girl just wanted laugh at being tickled and hear that she brought you joy. Not shiver in the corner after being abused by your hands. She just wanted to be the child that made you smile, not feel the regret of being the burden that ruined your life. She shouldn't be hearing all these negative thoughts about all the things she stopped in your life.
Mmmmmmm the smell of chocolate chip cookies brings about the emotion of strength, because when I grew up I realized that I am not my mother's mistake, I am one of God's greatest creations. I realized that I cannot live a life of bitterness, for someone else's issues. I realized that I like oatmeal raisin cookies instead.
