Simple Pleasures

I was reminded about the simplest of pleasures last night…my mom’s chocolate cupcakes! I loved them as a kid, and I love them as an adult.

Last night I was the parent assigned to the youth group supper, and mom graciously agreed to make “Mary’s Famous Chocolate/Chocolate Cupcakes.” It was reported that certain individuals at 2 and 3 cupcakes. Upon bringing the leftovers home, my little one leapt to her feet and screamed “CUPCAKES!!!!” Seeing chocolate all over her face while she consumed a little piece of heaven reminded me of the days when I dove right into one. Mom’s cupcakes are not just for the little ones…Mary Beth begged for a second, and Mark enjoyed his share.

As I peeled the paper of my very own chocolate dream, I was reminded about the simplest pleasures that bring about the best memories and biggest smiles.
