for the past several days i have been hearing an anxious isaak say "mama, let's bake sprinkle cookies!"  my response has been "when i see you using your great virtues, we can bake cookies." of course, everyday i see isaak using great virtues along with typical three year old behavior... of not so great virtues! after receiving a gift from grandma of irresistible Christmas sprinkles isaak has been longing to engage in his new passion for baking.  it has been a great opportunity of learning to work towards something wanted.  today, i am grateful for moments of learning.  for gaining patience, understanding, appreciation.  and for the sweet, delicious taste of sprinkle cookies!
