The day we had terrible winds because of Hurricane Irene, I needed to do something that would make me happy. I was feeling sad because their wasn't much I could do to help anyone who was in harms way... except pray. Not that there isn't power in prayer but sometimes we just feel like we need to do something, you know?
So I decided to make cupcakes. And the best part is decorating them! And as I spent my afternoon and evening doing this delicious labor the thought occurred to me that I could make some to take with me when I visit friends and family who were in the hurricane. It would put a smile on their faces too I'm sure!
How about you? Do cupcakes make you smile? Even though my cupcakes are decorated in pink and white icing my brother and father didn't mind. They said they tasted wonderful! Ahhh. Mission accomplished. :)
Anyone want a cupcake?
