My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” … I admit that if you are getting a box of chocolates gifted to you, yes, you will not know what is inside. Life is a gift after all, so it makes sense.

Special moments when you want to show your appreciation are so often done with a big gesture like a: Wedding Cake; Birthday Cake; and seriously, is there anyone out there who doesn’t love cookies?

Right now people are going beyond to help each other. A great example are those in the medical profession like nurses and doctors who are risking their lives with this Corona–19 Virus to save lives.

While New Yorkers are applauding their medical workers, in Roswell, GA people are sending cookies and cakes that “I Canita Cake” makes to their hospitals and first responders.

One of the best ways to motivate kids who are all now homeschooling is snack time rewards. Canita came up with a special decorating kit for parents to use with any age kid.

People are putting gifts out for the mailman and Amazon delivery people that are helping them stay at home.

Canita says her customers are telling her how wonderful she is. This has never happened before.

Gratitude is a basic human emotion that is about our ability to feel and express thankfulness and appreciation. According to leading gratitude researcher Dr. Robert Emmons, the idea of receiving a gift is central to the experience of gratitude. When we feel deeply grateful, one of the gifts we might feel like we are receiving is that of unconditional love.

Some of us find it difficult to be thankful, especially during this time of life challenges. During the most traumatic phase of any tragedy is exactly when we need to connect with each other.

“Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.”
