Thousands of miles away and MREs (Meals, Ready-to-Eat) on the menu, how much would you love a homemade cookie?
I learned about this from my mom whose church regularly sends cards, letters, and care packages overseas to the armed forces. My mom and her fellow church ladies bake some of the best cookies in the world, so they gather up all kinds of goodies and treats and send them overseas where the taste of “down home” surely brings many smiles of satisfaction. Those who are less gifted in the baking department, such as me, can make a $15 donation to Operation Gratitude, which pays for a care package for one service person. Operation Gratitude has sent over a million of these kindness kits around the world!
