Sometimes you just wonder how you are going to make it in a day. Worry grabs hold of you like a cramp in the stomach and squeezes the energy, the hope and the happiness out of your life. On one such day, when worry was squeezing me so hard I could not see the daylight a very magical thing happened at Koorey Creations……
We were a relatively new company, in a very strong developemental point of our business, where you wonder if you have made a mistake or overextended yourself to grow. The bills are coming due on all your risks and not much is happening on the retail floor. Of course in every household, neccessary expenses appear out of nowhere and sometimes you just can’t see the light of day.
I remember at that time questioning not only the wisdom of my business choices, but it had somehow snoballed into a questioning of ALL my choices in life. I was spiraling out of control emotionally and didn’t like it. So I just took a deep breath and did one of my most favorite things. I told God it was HIS job to be the miracle maker, so, please, just perform a miracle to let us know we were on the right track.
Minutes later, a couple entered our store and proceeded to make a very significant purchase, which in an of itself was definitely a miracle message, but then something more magical happened. This couple, left, happy purchases in hand, and one hour later returned, with the most beautiful cake we had ever seen. Complete with plates, napkins, folks and ambition to serve it to our staff!
This young chef was an executive pastry chef at the Chicago Cordon Bleu! And just wanted to treat us, as special, as he had felt he had been treated. I did cry, and with a thankful heart ate every lucsious piece to the last crumb!
That happened 15 years ago. And we are still in business to this day!
This is a Tribute to The CAKE BOSS at Koorey Creations. And the MIRACLE MAKER in heaven!!!
