My day today was spent in a special labor of love. Actually, I spent a few days in this particular endeavor. I was asked to make an order of Weecakies with yellow flowers. My first thought was to make little yellow roses for the tops, but then I changed my plan and made daffodils when I found out that they were going to be given out as a gift to a group of Young Women and their mothers after a discussion of "The Daffodil Principle" by Jaroldeen Edwards. Basically the short story teaches us that patience, small steps, and time are all necessary in the development of our lives-that nothing of any value comes easily. The making of these little cakies takes time, patience and dozens of small steps. First there's an idea, then a plan, some trial and error, and then the final assembly. Even then, sometimes, there's a re-adjustment in that assembly stage. Just as the book quotes:
"Learning to move toward our goals and desires one step at a time, learning to
love the doing, learning to use the accumulation of time...When we multiply
tiny pieces of time with small increments of daily effort, we too will find we
can accomplish magnificent things. We can change the world."
I love making Weecakies. I love the ideas, the planning, the tiny details and the giving. It is as though I am giving a tiny part of myself in every one. Thank you to all of you who help make this possible in my life.
