Raisin filled sugar cookies

I had a few requests for Grandma Pitchforth's raisin filled sugar cookie recipe.

Can someone make these shoes with one-inch heels?

I wore shoes like this at my junior high graduation.  I can't wear heels this high and I don't want to spend $139!

Four girls

Yesterday I visited Clara Grace and took her a burp cloth.  She's as beautiful as her three big sisters.

Twenty dollars

My friend Jenny borrowed $20 from me on Monday at the Boston Marathon (she had no cash to buy her son a Boston Strong t-shirt).  I got this $20 bill in the mail today from her in a nice card.

It reminded me of a story my parents used to tell about when they were a young married couple with young kids.  My dad was a school teacher and sometimes when money got tight before pay day my parents would call our friends the Jensens (they lived in LaCrescenta and Joe was also a school teacher) and ask to borrow $20.  Joe and Gloria would mail a $20 bill to my parents and after payday my parents would mail a $20 bill back to them.  And sometimes the Jensens would call to borrow $20 before payday.  I like this nice story about friendship.
