Tomorrow I will be hosting a Facebook Live cooking class for little ones across the nation. It’s not the first time I’ve done this but it has been a while!
Am I nervous? Yes.
Kiddos are the most discerning and honest folks when it comes to their food! If it looks funny or smells funny they are going to be the first to let you know. I’m going with a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. No frills, no fuss, just the butter, sugar and chocolate! If they’re a kid that likes a solid chocolate chip cookie then they’ll love this.
I don’t think it’s the worry if they’ll like the taste as much as if they’ll like the “show.” So what can I do to ease these nerves. I’ve prepped all that I can and made sure my stage is set. I’m talking to y’all to get out the night before jitters and then I’ll go pray.
This live isn’t just about baking cookies. It’s about making the most of the time we have with our loved ones. Our nation -our world- is going through one of the most unprecedented times that most all of us have ever seen. COVID-19, Coronavirus, The Rona … This virus is taking center stage in our lives and placing strains on countless households across the country. Churches are closed. Restaurants are take out only. Retailers are shut down. School is cancelled.
We need glimmers of hope in varying places to take our minds off of the mayhem. To take our minds off of the unknown. I am hoping that this live can do just that. It can be one hour in the day of a little one & their family that’s filled with pure joy.
I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. I am however prayerful that it will bring a new day filled with hope, smiles and meaningful interactions. I am certain that some of you may be in the same boat. Let me remind you how resilient we are as a nation. How resilient we are as a people. Our ancestors endured mountains of burdens. They faced obstacles and nationwide controversies that I will never understand. If they could get through those times, I can surely host a little Facebook live tomorrow and I know without a doubt that we can certainly rise up after these times.
They were tough. I am tough. I am confident that you too, are one tough cookie.
