As I know many of you have been doing recently, I’ve been praying for Japan. Not only for protection and physical recovery, but for emotional and spiritual restoration as well. And I pray for what I don’t understand because frankly, there sure is a lot of that.
One other thing I’m doing is baking for Japan. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that’s what I do. I bake, and I bake for others. When I don’t know what to say or what to do when people are hurting, I want to meet their basic need of eating. Okay, so maybe eating comfort foods like cookies and cake isn’t quite a basic need, but when eaten in moderation, I know it helps.
I’ll be busy baking a few of my favorite cookies tonight (can you guess what they are?), and tomorrow we’ll be selling a LOT of baked goods at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, come rain or shine. All proceeds will go to the charity Peace Winds Japan.
If you’re in the NYC area tomorrow, please visit the Bake Sale for Japan at the Brooklyn Flea, and look for our setup in front of the fence outside on the sidewalk. Special thanks to Lillian of Sweets by Sillianah for organizing the NYC sale and to the many volunteers involved around the nation who are graciously donating their time and efforts for a great cause.
