Guest Columns: Being Truly Blessed Because Of Deep Connections
By Tracy Dueck. When we think of times gone by, our minds conjure up all kinds of images: little girls having tea parties, baked goods fresh from the oven, playing softball, being silly, and running freely through the grass on a warm spring day. We think of times shared around the table, and of those we spent that time with.
Recently I spent some time with one of my dear friends. I met Jacky over 30 years ago, although it seems like yesterday. During our visit, she and I went “thrifting” together (you know, when you buy stuff that someone else threw out.) I like the analogy of thrifting; other peoples’ trash is my treasure! (My husband says he needs to place a worldwide restraining order on me for my thrift store habit, but that’s another story!)
Jacky and I cooked together, made even more memories together, celebrated her first home, and enjoyed laughing until the wee hours of the morning. Just spending time with Jacky made the day – and the following week so much better!
She and I talked about the past, but we also live in the moment. We know that all too suddenly, life can – and does – change for a lot of us.
Who will be there for you when that happens? I know I have people – like my friend Jacky – and you may have names that come to mind to fill in that space. If so, you are truly blessed, and your life is enriched because of those deep connections.
At Tracycakes, we’re extending our hours to give you more opportunities
to do just that.
Starting April 16, we’ll be open LATE in our Abbotsford and White Rock locations.
Hours 10am – 9pm Monday through Saturday
(Abbotsford and White Rock only!)
Pick up the phone and invite your girlfriends to meet you there for a time sharing and caring, laughing and remembering when!
We serve specialty coffees, including our new “cupcake latte” (for adults only!) made with frangelica liquor and of course our steaming locally roasted
artisan coffee all perfectly finished with whip cream and sprinkles or if you
lean towards a glass of wine, then we are proud to serve the
Cupcake Vineyards wines from California!
