A win, win
Seriously! I’ve said it time and time again — I love what I do! Every day I’m reminded how my cooking classes and presentations, cookbooks, blogging, and speaking events touch others lives. It’s the greatest reward to do what you love and positively impact others too. As my friend Rebecca says, “It’s a win, win.”
Saturday, when I picked up my mail…Surprise, surprise… A teary eyed surprise. A thank you card from the Clark College “Food and Your Health” students and a Chipotle gift card for times “You don’t feel like cooking” wrote Kristen Myklebust their instructor/my new friend. The card was signed by all of the 100 students I hosted last month. So thoughtful. So sweet. In today’s cyber age, it’s so nice to receive a handwritten card. The card has a permanent spot on my desk and in my heart.
I feel so proud of what I do. I feel so honored. Thank you for allowing me to be your real example, share my knowledge of food and cooking, and love of life with you. Thank you all for the bright, sunshiny card. It seems this is reciprocity at it’s best. A win, win.
