I have been a big blubbery, crying mess these past few weeks and this recipe for Swig Sugar Cookie Bars only reminds me of the source of my crazy emotions.
My oldest son is preparing to leave for two years to serve a mission for our church in San Diego, California. He has been gone at college for the past year and is only home for a week before he leaves. Every ounce of my motherly instinct wants to call a mommy foul on him for only being here a week, but how can I? I am so proud of him and the choice he has made. I just wish I had more than a week together before I don’t see him again for 2 years. You understand, right?
