2017-37 - Have A Piece of Cake

Often we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did life have to do this to me?"

A daughter was telling her Mother how everything was going wrong, she failed algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her, and her best friend was moving away.

Her mother, baking a cake, asked her if she would like a snack, and the daughter said, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."

"Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother offered. "Yuck" said her daughter.

"How about a couple raw eggs?" "Gross, Mom!"

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe some baking soda?" "Mom, those are all yucky!"

To which the mother replied: "Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake! Life works the same way. There are always ups and downs, no matter how successful you are."

Thank you for life, and all the little ups and downs that make it worth living.
