This past week, I learned that one of my high school friends had been hit by a car while biking home in the city. Although the driver immediately took off, not bothering to check how badly he injured the cyclist, my friend somehow walked away without any broken bones or concussions, mainly suffering a few scrapes and a football-sized bruise.
What a blessing!
After hearing the story, I headed over to the post office the next day and handed over a box with a dozen of my freshly baked ultimate healthy oatmeal raisin cookies sealed inside to the lady behind the counter. Nothing helps heal bumps and bruises faster than a surprise package of homemade sweet treats, right?
As I watched the woman carry the box to the large stack in the back of the room waiting to be sorted, a small smile spread across my face…
…because I felt as if I were paying it forward. You give me sweet surprises every day—by trying my recipes and tagging me in pictures of them on Instagram and Facebook, by leaving me thoughtful comments here on my blog, by sharing my website with your family and friends—and with how much those things warm my heart, I wanted to continue spreading that happiness!
All of those actions of yours mean so much to me, and they have enabled me to turn my blog into my full-time job. It’s an absolute dream come true, and I’m incredibly grateful for what you’ve done for me!
