Brownie Cakes Help a Smile Along

--by Aurelia, posted Jan 26, 2011

Today at work, there was a misunderstanding between our boss and a friend of mine. My friend felt terrible and just wanted to go home after the confrontation.  However, she is a teacher and going home was not possible. 

When I went home for lunch, I thought about what I could do to brighten the rest of her day. Then I remember I had these Yummy Easy Brownie Cakes you make in the microwave in one minute!  I quickly put a smiley face on a sticky note and wrote, "Eat Cake and SMILE."

When I returned to work, Kelly's students were in art class and she was alone, so I went in and gave her the Easy Brownie Mix and yest, she SMILED widely and said, "Aurelia, you are so good to me!...I love you."

It felt awesome to know I was able to give her to the lift she needed :)

Smiles are contagious :) and it felt like the school had a different atmosphere when Kelly felt better.
