The most wonderful birthday box

In preparation for Mama’s upcoming birthday this week, I asked a group of fellow home cook enthusiasts for advice in recreating a boxed spice cake mix she loves from scratch. We were both very deeply touched by the many kind responses, recipe suggestions, and birthday wishes.

And then, a total stranger asked if she could send us the actual boxed mix that Mama loves in honor of a dear friend of hers who passed from brain cancer. This angel from the other side of the county, Jennifer B., then overnighted this wonderfully generous birthday box!

Joyful tears welled in Mama’s eyes as she hugged the box mixes! Yes, mixes! This angel sent TWO boxes of DH Spice Cake Mix, a tub of DH Cream Cheese Frosting, a box of the most delightful fancy chocolates, and a lovely birthday card!

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was the most wonderful birthday box! Massive thanks to Jennifer B. for your kindness and generosity! Your friend Gary’s memory is a blessing! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
