Thank You Thursday

Posted on October 30, 2014 by Joanna Gaston

Hey guys! I am slammed today but I wanted to share with you a quick story that has completely re-energized me and keeps me focused on why this company exists. Today, I went to the grocery store to quickly pick up an ingredient and was on the receiving end of kindness. 

I'm in line at the Starbucks in the grocery store and an older man, whose face I have yet to see at this point, pays for his order (it was a pretty big order). He knew I was behind him and told the barista, "Go ahead and make the young lady's order before mine." I was so grateful because I'm literally running (or biking) from errand to errand. Well, the man turns around and, in my mind, I shout "SANTA?" 

Trying to keep it cool like, "no bigs, you just look EXACTLY like Santa Clause," we start chatting. I told him about how he just displayed one of the acts of kindness that comes underneath every one of my cupcakes: Let someone go in front of you in line and thanked him for being generous enough to sacrifice his time for mine. His response? [feeling his long white beard] "Well it is getting closer to my season, you know."  Haha!! Yes, it sure is! Every season is a good season to pay forward and act of kindness, and for that I'm thankful, really thankful!

I believe in serendipity and I believe in things ordained by something that's infinitely bigger than me. Thank God for that.

with kindness,
