Miranda Lambert didn’t spend her Thanksgiving in Nashville or her native Texas this year.

Instead, she traveled to Alabama with her love Anderson East to spend the holiday with his family. While she was there, she learned a very valuable and sweet life lesson.

You see, Ran made cookies to take to the family gathering. To her, they weren’t the best-looking batch she’d ever made, and she admitted she was embarrassed to take them into the dinner.

But a little encouragement from her sweet man turned things around and gave her a different perspective, which she shared on her Instagram in a Thanksgiving post.

“I’m thankful for so much: Family, friends, mutts and music just to name a few,” she wrote. “And for my sweet Bama boy that encouraged me to walk these into his family’s Thanksgiving when I was totally embarrassed of them. Really UGLY cookies that taste REALLY GOOD!”

Here comes the big a-ha moment we all need to hear.

“The message we all need to remember sometimes comes with sprinkles. ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts.’ I’m very thankful for the little reminder. #thanksgiving #homemadelessons #theicing #Bamafam #sprinklesomelove #UglyCookieCo”

Yes, we all need to sprinkle more love in this world. Thanks for the reminder, Miranda.

And we’d take a batch of those cookies any day of the week! They look just perfect to us.

Here’s hoping Miranda and Anderson had a great day with family.

Samantha Stephens absolutely lives for music. When she's not making it, she's talking or writing about it.
