Making a difference one stick of butter at a time

What’s up, everybody?  Last week was crazy busy!  I am blessed with business and really amazing customers.  I am enjoying pick up day more than anything lately.  All the gasps, smiles, and hugs are worth every minute of work.  I LOVE being a part of people’s special events.  It’s amazing how much emphasis our society places on the cake at an event.  Think about event pictures from your life.  How many of them are posed around a cake?  I am willing to bet you all have a picture of a birthday party or milestone party and the person of honor is holding their cake.  So now, think about what an honor it is for me to be creating those cakes that will be in all those family albums.  It’s almost overwhelming when put in those terms.  My job is a gift and I don’t take it for granted for a single minute.  So, my mission for you is this.  Find what about your job makes a difference for people around you.  Some jobs are obvious.  Nurses, teachers, soldiers, and the like are clearly heroes for those around them.  But what about you?  Do you work in an office?  How about in food service?  I’m sure a lot of you don’t feel like your job makes a noble impact in people’s lives.  There’s several of you out there that feel like altruism escapes them.  But I guarantee each and every one of you is making a difference in the lives of someone somewhere.  We are all linked on some level and need to make the most of it.  If I can find the ways I impact people through something like cake, then you can find your way too!  I would love for you to leave a comment of what your job is and how you are positively impacting those around you and beyond.

 Thank you for coming back each week to see what I’ve been making.  I love sharing them with you all!
