My Heart is Overflowing

This is a thing I rarely admit to anyone: I love people. Just like that, people in my everyday life or even people I read about. I so love people who are nice to others and to the world in general, who made a discovery benefiting to the humanity or who just help an old women cross the street, those who make us laugh I love dearly and those, men AND women, who are able to give an uplifting compliment to every women they know, hence to every human being they know - we all need it. I have this thing, this moment when I feel my heart overflowing with love and joy and in some of this situations I have to restrain myself from hugging people around me.
Now don't get me wrong, I've been hurt by people and I suffered but I forget easily and I simply am not able to hate - I'm so happy about it!
I too love doing nice things for people around me. Just last week I made some "faux" cupcakes for the birthday of a young girl I work with. I bought brownies but I decorated them with cheese frosting and colorful sugar sprinkles. Everybody loved them, but there was a young girl who is allergic to peanuts and she couldn't eat them, didn't want to take a chance with bought brownies. So I decided to make it up to her and I baked  cupcakes myself, decorated them exactly like those brownies before and brought them to her in the beginning of this week. She was flabbergasted! She couldn't believe I've made those especially for her. I got a big hug and she was so happy, she even called her mom and her friends to tell them about it.
But to tell you the truth, I'm the one who has gotten the most from it: one of those priceless moments that fill your hearth with joy...

Yasmine you are sooo sweet and you do bring joy with you when you come around. I love your story and can just picture how happy that girl was...how fun!...I love the way you did that interesting thing with the waxed paper around your beautiful cupcakes..you are also a very clever girl! xo

@Sherri, about that waxed paper - I promised myself I'll buy an appropriate cupcake carrier. Riding on a bus with a box of cupcakes separated with waxed paper, not so clever! They survived just fine, but next time I'm going to use some of the really clever ideas I found on the Internet (two days later of course).

Where are MY cupcakes????

Yasmine said...

@Mama's Girl: well, you have to come and get them!

I am so with you on the "I love people"-thing, Yasmine! And I am glad to read I am not the only one ;-) - sometimes it feels silly to be so people-oriented... Your cupcakes look delicious. And the surprise will come back to you as good karma, I am sure!
PS: Thanks for your kind comment - another sign of your people-love, cos there is so little going on on my blog, that it must take a person like you to come by and check it out every once in a while. Thanks!

Such a nice gesture! And boy, these cupcakes look yummy.

Making people feeling good make us feel good too. I believe in karma :-)

@Sonia: welcome to the club! I too believe that life gives you back and not necessarily the person to whom you were kind. It's the order in the Universe, or at least I hope so...BTW, it's so nice to hear from you again, thanks for stopping by.

@Zhu: it sure make us feel good too, our gestures aren't always totally selfless. The feeling is actually so amazing that the gesture is worth it for it alone!
