Nobody likes a control freak, unless she bakes

One of my favorite quotes, that sums me up is; Nobody likes a control freak, unless she bakes. I'm a bit of a control freak, I like to know what's going on and what to expect. I'm the one that's over prepared. I have freezer meals in my freezer, a stockpile of groceries, and an emergency box in my car full of clothes, food, sunblock, band aids, ect. When I feel helpless, I bake and cook. When Grandma was in the hospital last fall, I cooked and baked and brought food to Grandpa a couple times a week. I canned all of Grandma's peaches and pears, because it was the only thing I could do to help.

Grandma was rushed to the hosptial again last night. I don't have updates or details, but I'm feeling helpless again. So what am I doing? Well, the cookies were made this morning, I have soup done, and next is dinner rolls. That's just what I do. It makes me feel like I'm helping.

Please keep Grandma in your prayers!

I'm so sorry. It's hard to have no control over the situation, especially one that involves someone you love. I wish you well. And don't eat all the cookies...:)
