It is comforting to live in a country with different cultures. We have the freedom to change the English language, make our own traditions, and everything else under the sun! It’s a Blessing because many men and women chose to protect our Land. Whether or not we admit it, as Americans, we are thankful for their service.
The customer was overjoyed and the trifle birthday cake was a success. More importantly, our sweet (cheesy pun intended) customer was brave enough to share a life struggle. I was honored to listen, share, and Love. A “trifling moment” became a memorable Blessing. Once again, I was reminded why the bakery exists.
Life is hard for everyone. Some people’s lives are tougher than others. We all need to take the time to Love and listen.
Sadly most small business owners only care about money. In fact, I have a colleague who only wants to discuss business. Also, I know a business owner who ignores his “friends” but becomes kind and caring when they visit his store.
Maybe ugly pride is another reason why businesses fail.

If we would look at each other before the cash register and our wallets, we could stop the virus of hate. Last year NPR announced the anniversary of the destruction of the Berlin wall. Germany’s symbol of hatred lasted for thirty years. Now they are celebrating. We need to tear down our walls of money and make trifling moments. If we did, there would be more celebrations than hate crime memorials.
Yes- We are a for profit business. However, the profits are used to help others in need and share our Joy. When you make a purchase, we give our contact information in case you need our help.
