Many Things to Give Thanks For

Well, Thanksgiving is just 3 days away, and we’re baking up a storm preparing Bundt cakes, cornbread, Mac&Cheese, Candied Yams, and More!  (click here for our Thanksgiving Day menu)

In tough economic times like these where people have lost their jobs, homes, healthcare, or worse, it might appear that there is very little to be thankful for.

I recently had a conversation with one of my customers from the “early days” at KMBB.  She told me that she was so sorry that she couldn’t order cakes or candied yams from me this year because she really wanted to support me in my aggressive sales goal to Save the bakery.  She went on to share that she has recently lost her job and couldn’t afford to buy anything from Kiss My Bundt Bakery for Thanksgiving.  She is at risk of losing her home, she’s already lost her health insurance, and she worried about what the immediate future holds her her and her family.

But, in the face of all the hardships she’s facing, she shared that she is thankful to have good health, to have food on her table, and to have the leisure time to stop by her favorite bakery for a chat before she had to get her kids from school.

In the face of all she’s going through, she could understandably be someone with a negative outlook on life and find few things to be thankful for.  But, she is focused on what she does have and is giving thanks this year for those things.

In light of this experience, I’m reminded that there are always things to be Thankful for.  Even when things seem dire.

This entire week, I’m going to be spending at least 10 minutes a day thinking about the things I DO have and no time on the things I don’t.  I’m going to give thanks for those things.  

I’ll be blogging every day this week about the things I’m grateful for.

Giving thanks to all of you for reading my blog and supporting me. 🙂
