MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: A beautiful cake

This story is from the 2015 Facebook post of Lisa Sarber Aldrich.

Picked out a cake at Meijer. Asked bakery-looking-employee if she could write on it for me. She said she would, and after a long time, she came and presented me with this cake.

I looked her in the eye and said, “thank you” before I even looked at the cake.

After looking, I nervously laughed and headed to check out- it didn’t really matter to me that it looked so bad – I thought people would think it was funny.

The cashiers at the self check out didn’t think it was so funny though, and called a few more cashiers and a manager over to look, even taking pictures.

To my surprise, after they discussed it, one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said “the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her – even though she’s not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day.”

So I guess the moral of the story is that kindness is important!
