a humble thanks...

I had a bride call to thank me this weekend. It was so humbling. I hung up and felt overwhelmed by it because the whole time I was thinking "I want to thank YOU." I said it to her, but I wanted to tell you as well.

We live in such a self centered world. Everything in our culture seems to point to our wants, our opinions, agendas and what we need at the moment. In such self focus, we often lose appreciation for others and gratefulness is rare.

Thank You. Just two little words, but they mean a lot. When was the last time you thanked someone?

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wonder if it would be a good idea to take these coming weeks and reflect on all we are thankful for. Maybe try to change our perspective. See the good and positive things in our life and stop taking people we say we love for granted.

When this bride called me, it took me by surprise. I didn't expect it. After all, I was a vendor. She hired me. But she said thanks. It spoke a lot to her character and it reminded me of the importance of a thank you.

So I wanted to make sure that I don't take you all for granted.

I get to work. I get to have the distinct privilege of working from home, and still pursue a passion of mine.

I love what I do and I am humbled every day that God has given me the opportunity to do it. Therefore, my first Thank you goes to Him.

Also, a huge thank you to my husband of 15 years and best friend, Phil. Without his support and help, Frosted wouldn't be possible.

To all my customers who have ordered cakes, allowed me to have a part in your wedding day or special occasion, to my friends and family who have supported me and helped me in this cake venture... THANK YOU. I will be forever grateful.

I can't wait to see what the future holds in store for Frosted.
