I Believe...

I believe hot chocolate should come with whipped cream. And sprinkles. I believe jeans go with everything. I believe baths were made for bubbles, horses were made for girls and spoons were made for licking. I believe Christmas is magical.

I believe in love. I believe God is love. I believe God loves you and God loves me and God loves puppies, too.

I believe in line-dried sheets and fireplaces and wooden floors and candles that flicker. I believe in Grandmas and chicken 'n dumplings and old hymns.

And I am fairly certain that given a nice cape and a few cookies, I can change the world.

I'm out for a few days getting henrybellas on line. And developing a recipe for our new Caramel Compassion Cookie, a little sweet that will raise money for children in AIDS impacted regions of east Africa. I'll see you soon. -Brin

I believe that your cookie idea for Compassion is going to be amazing! I believe that Christmas is magical, too. And I believe you are my favourite blog of all time! Best wishes for a quick and simple process of getting Henribella's online.

I believe you're right, Brin, and I believe that you're doing a wonderful, wonderful thing. My niece just did a fundraiser with her art work for AIDS orphans in Africa. She's about your age. I'm proud of you both.

Well, Miss Brin....
I can hardly wait to see Henrybella's online. I just know that it's going to be so charming.

Just out of curiosity... what color would your cape be? That might even be an idea for a fun "Super cookie" of some sort -- a caricature of you in a cape for the packaging. Children love those kinds of things (their mommy's do, too!)

Many Blessings,
Julie
