In your day to day life you may or may not come in contact with the police. However in the background they are always serving and protecting. So I figured they deserved a little treat for all that they do.
Being respectful of the age old doughnut jokes I decided to do homemade cookies instead. I used the Cocolattas recipe from the Joanne Fluke books and her Lake Eden Cookbook that I got for Christmas. Side Note: I have baked about 20 of the cookie recipes from multiples books and all have been fabulous!!
I headed out to the Police Station of my own free will and they even let me leave! Suckers! Just kidding I am a very good girl!
I am also a huge book nerd and read about 30-50 books from the library every year. Can’t beat free but since I am there every week getting books for free I figured I would also show the librarians some love too since my second Mom (Hi, Mom T) was a library aide, my elementary school and my junior high librarians all sparked my love for books. So I put a dozen cookies down on the book return table. I was checking out and they turned and saw the cookies and totally caught me since I was the only one around they asked me and I couldn’t lie. They were so surprised and grateful it made me really bashful about it. Ninja skills -3, Kerry 0.
There are so many that do so much just by doing their job, but silently make a difference. Who would you show your appreciate to with cookies?
