Frosting for the Cause ~ My Story

I have the honor of guest posting at

My story...with a side of PB&J cookies. 

A Long Life May Not Be Good Enough,  
But a Good Life is Long Enough. ~ B. Franklin

For those who rely on poison to prolong survival....I salute you.

This post is also dedicated to my niece and nephew  (AJ and Jocelyn) who sold sunglasses and donated their money to the NBTA.  Your selfless acts of charity and love will always rest 
peaceful on my heart and soul.  

And Thank You to Paula from Vanilla Bean Baker for her
hard work and dedication to Frosting for the Cause!

Trish, I stopped over at Frosting For The Cause and left you a note there! Your PB&J's are a delicious reminder about the important things in life, like your precious Sophia Rose. I see they are wearing smiles... I am too ( and a little tear)!
Much prayer and love for you today!

These little PB and J cookies are the cutest thing! I love that there is less sugar in it, which makes a better snack for the little ones. You truly are a courageous woman! Hugs to you. ( about a week ago I posted about making dessert for a family who had a daughter in the hospital... that young lady has a brain tumor.)

You have turned a difficult road into one filled with love, courage, and beauty. Your family is VERY LUCKY to have you! My eyes filled up reading your wonderful post. And now for the cookies - my kids would have eaten these till they came out their noses! Isabelle Rose is 13 and still a P B an J-aholic. Well done, my friend!

Hi Trisha
I've visited your guest post and need say no more. The cookies you and Sophia Rose made are the cutest things as PB & J will always be a comfort food.

Trisha! Thank you for always putting life in perspective. I'm so proud to call you my sister and will always be there for you! Thank you also, for dedicating this blog post to Andrew and Jocelyn. It is with a child's inspiration and we can propel forward as adults. We love you sooooo much! ~ Paula

Your daughter, like yourself is beautiful. She is blessed to have you for her mother and I believe that you are one of the most inspirational people I know. To have shared your story in the manner that you did touches my heart and soul and you have left a mark that will be treasured always. Thank you for not only baking a difference, but for making a difference in the lives of those so very fortunate to have crossed paths with you.
