Thank You Thursday

Posted on March 19, 2015 by Joanna Gaston

Today, I'm thankful for people like April Maglothin. April is such an inspiration to me as she successfully runs her own business, Pop-in-Greetings. I am a huge fan of what she does (and so is my mom). Her beautifully crafted stationery with the brilliant interchangeable messages is already a hit and will continue to grow in popularity. That said, I was so honored April wanted to feature The Kind Cake in her latest blog post and I'm so thankful for women entrepreneurs like April who continue to inspire me and many others!

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

Today, I'm thankful for the city of Nashville, because in Nashville, you get to do ridiculously cool things like go to a house show, hear some amazing music, connect with friends and meet new ones. Keaton Simons is an incredible talent and I am now a certified fan. What a wonderful thing to truly love the city you live in; so very thankful for this town. Check it out!

We are so proud to provide a product that nearly everyone can enjoy. When families with food allergies come to us, we learn about their stories and the hurdles they have to clear. It really puts things into perspective. Recently we made a delivery to a speech and hearing center at Vanderbilt. Maybe you'd think "seems like a standard delivery...." but it wasn't at all. Seeing the faces of kids who only know a life with the hand dealt to them will stop anyone in their tracks. Your heart grows fuller and your sense of gratitude is immediate.  We are so lucky, blessed and thankful to be a part of these families' lives and look forward to extending our reach across Tennessee and the rest of the U.S.!

Thank You Thursday (Saturday Edition)

So, I was playing basketball at the community center close to where I live and had the gym to myself. I didn't have any distractions: no music in my ears, no one to fetch loose basketballs for (which, to me, is always an understood courtesy when sharing the court). That said, I started thinking about my days playing basketball at my old school. Even though Dad taught me how to play, my coaches helped improve my shot and sharpen my skills.

Even though my stream of consciousness was all over the place, I managed to vividly recall two of my favorite coaches and their extremely different coaching styles: "Big A" and Ms. Dear. Big A was everyone's father figure on the team and Ms. Dear?...well, we were terrified of Ms. Dear (I say this lovingly). Putting it in perspective, Ms. Dear's coaching style and demeanor were a lot like UT's Pat Summit. Big A and Ms. Dear complimented each other really well. A gentle spirit and personality combined with five feet and some odd inches of fervent competitiveness made for quite the dynamic duo. They were so passionate about the game and even more passionate about building a great team on a foundation of fundamentals. With every 'every line sprint', basketball drill, and early morning practice I never questioned the work expected from me and my teammates--probably because I knew we had two of the best leaders and trusted them to help the team reach its potential. It was easy in those moments when you felt you couldn't run another sprint or jump another rope to want to throw in the towel, but luckily for us, they never let us.

I believe what they taught me when I was a kid goes so far beyond offense and defense. It's the discipline that was engrained in all of us to do everything we could to succeed.  That discipline, drive and determination on and off the court has never left me and I know several of my former teammates who'd say the same about themselves. For that, I'm thankful.
