Comfort Cake

Comfort Cake

If I had to sum up Friendship in one word, it would be Comfort. 
-Terri Guillemets

Birthday cake... i did not see her son puff up his cheeks to blow out the candles, or even guess at his wish for the year... but the joy of celebration was prolonged when my friend Pam brought me two pieces of the birthday cake (and the recipe!)...

and now in the long shadows as the day finishes, i relax with my sweet slice of cake and sip my milk-tea ... and feel grateful that i am so fortunate to have such a good, kind friend.

Wishing you blessed friendships that flow back and forth in small kindnesses, delivering comforting goodness like waves upon the sand...

Karen,
What a sweet posting!! I'm sad it took me so long to read it, but I am so thankful you were able to enjoy the cake and the blessings of our God-given friendship. His mercies never end!!
I loved the picture of the flowers and the tranquility fountain, too. What a gift you share with all of us.
May your day be full of all joy and peace!! May God surprise you with something special to balance the stress of the week.

I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
