We Support Our Troops

This week was a week full of orders. I don’t really know how we fit it all in! Amazing. Well, in the midst of baking and decorating on Thursday, we received a very important phone call. It was from a gentleman who is serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq. He wanted to place an order for his wife’s 21st birthday, which was the very next day, Friday. By this time of the week we are nearing the end of our baking, plus we had plenty to focus on. BUT, we can really understand why this would mean so much to him, and his expectant wife’s birthday and not being here to celebrate with her. So, you know what we did?! We said yes! After 3 dropped calls and then finally a satelite phone, we were able to set his order in motion. I am really glad that we did, because we want to show our troops and their families how much we appreciate what they do and the sacrifices they make to continue freedom in our country. There is only one downside…we didn’t get a picture of it. It did have a really personal note on it, so in a way I am glad that we didn’t. I want you all to realize, that I don’t normally take an order like this for the next day, especially when we are so slammed. You never know!
