the thrill of cupcakes

Uncategorizedkensiekate1 Comment

My roommate, Brooklyn works at a cupcake shop. To advertise, they asked her to bring home boxes of cupcakes and pass them out to people living in our complex. She passed out some to people she knew would love a free cupcake and the rest to complete strangers (who, I'm sure, were also delighted at the prospect of a free cupcake). When she was finished, she remarked how awesome it was to bring magic to people. A bunch of people made the comment, "You just made my day!" Brooklyn was excited that she got to bring that joy to people. A couple of days later, I began to see a deeper concept found in this experience. I was reminded of Jeffrey R. Holland's talk from General Conference in April.  My favorite quote from this talk is, "Surely the thing God enjoys most about being God is the thrill of being merciful, especially to those who don't expect it and often feel they don'tdeserve it." Obviously this was on a much smaller scale, but Brooklyn got to give unexpected gifts to people who weren't expecting it and got to feel that "thrill."
