How a Thank You Note Made My Day
Since the new Texas Cottage Food Law took effect September first, I have been baking bread to sell at our local Farmer's Market. It has been fun, because my bread always sells out and people are very happy to have it! Last week I took some to a small pioneer day event, and sold out there too.
The law requires that we put a label on our foods, and include our address on it. Today in my mailbox was the kindest Thank You note from a customer:
My daughter and I visited Pioneer Day...on Saturday. She bought me a loaf of wheat bread. Oh my, it is wonderful. Had some on Sunday morning with ham and an egg. [here she drew a smiley face] Made me happy all day. Love it. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with others.
Sincerely, [her name] "
This sweet lady and I do not know each other, so I was doubly enchanted by her note. Little kindnesses such as this add joy to life if we focus on "just for today".
This has given me much "food for thought" about this latest hobby, and the potential for good in the simplest things like real home-made food.
I am going to miss these kinds of interaction when the Farmer's Market closes for the season in mid-October.
And I will look especially forward to having veggies to bring to it in the Spring!
