Thank You Thursday (The Oprah Magazine Edition)

Posted on October 15, 2015 by Joanna Gaston

This week has been one for the magazines. After meeting Gayle King and having her try our cupcakes, I found out The Kind Cake was going to be featured in O Magazine's November issue. Since then it has been a rush to get A LOT of things handled before the magazine was set to hit stands. They wanted their readers to be able to access the cupcakes, so we had a month and a half to figure out how we would ship perishable cupcakes across the nation. Suffice it to say, I have learned so many lessons in the last month and a half.

This week I was headed up to the commercial kitchen and stopped by the grocery store on the way. There it was...Oprah was holding a massive turkey. It was the November issue! I went to a closed checkout lane, set the magazine down on the conveyer belt and started flipping through the pages and I saw it. All of the hard work, the hustle, the happy moments, (the not so happy moments) was ALL worth it. I felt overwhelming relief to finally see something that, before, I could only have faith in.

Today, and every day, I appreciate those who give people like me a chance. Sometimes the one chance you give another person is enough to change a life and for that, I'm forever thankful.

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