One day, a girl came home from school and started pouring her heart out to her mom about how everything was going wrong in her life. She was getting poor grades in math, her boyfriend broke up with her, and her best friend was moving away. During the conversation, her mom, who was mixing up ingredients to make a cake, asked her daughter if she’d like a snack. The girl replied, “Yes, I love your baking! It always makes me feel better.”
“Here you go,” her mom said and offered her daughter some cooking oil. “Yuck,” her daughter replied. “Then how about a few eggs?” she asked as she started cracking them into the bowl. “Gross, Mom!” her daughter replied. “OK, maybe some flour would help?” the mom asked with a smile. Finally, the girl said, “Mom, those are all gross, what would I do with them?!”
The mom simply replied, “Yes, the ingredients all seem bad by themselves, but when they are combined, they make a wonderfully delicious cake. Our lives are the same way. Many times we are discouraged by challenges in our lives, but we have to trust that we can create the perfect mix of ingredients to make something wonderful.”
