Hot Chocolate for the Soul

posted on: Friday, November 14, 2008

Thank you for coming to my house and cooking me a delicious meaty dinner even though you are vegan. Thank you for your kind e-mail and comforting words of friendship even though we've never met. Thank you my sweet readers who poured my inbox with e-mails and left me sweet comments on my post. I am so grateful to all of you.

Most of all, thank you my sweet husband who became a super hero these last couple days taking care of Enzo, the house, and me. Thank you for loving me even when I'm broken and completely irrational. Thank you for the small things you do that makes me smile. Thank you for the comforting hot chocolate you made me last night and the conversations that we have where we can't help but continue to plan for another child.

I wish I could have each and every single one of you over. I wish we could sit and talk and I could pour out my heart to you and sip hot chocolate together. I would thank you for your friendship and tell you that I will be here for you when you need me. Until that happens I'll leave you with this easy hot chocolate recipe. I hope you use it when you need some warm comfort in you life.
