Yesterday was my youngest, and very pregnant, daughter’s 25th birthday. I stopped by Nothing Bundt Cakes on my way home from work, and picked up a “bundlet”.
Or two. Or three. Or more. One for her and a different flavor for Andrew. She had to have birthday cake. And a bundtlet kind of reminded me of the bun in the oven she is presently sporting.
They’re delicious! And they are the perfect size! Little individually sized bundt cakes. And they come in a wide variety of flavors to choose from. She chose Red Velvet. He chose White Chocolate Raspberry.
Then there was my household. I couldn’t not think of my dear husband and father. After all, they do make a Chocolate Chip one that is gluten free. And my husband is gluten free. And Pecan Praline fit my dad’s tastes to a T.
So home I went with a bag of four little bundt cakes. First a stop at Maddee’s to deliver their two.
As I arrived, I took her two out of the sealed brown bag to run in to her. And to my surprise, there were not four little bundlets like I had purchased, but five! The sales lady went in back to get a Nothing Bundt Cake sticker to “seal” the bag and she snuck one in!
I had told her as I was ordering that I needed one for my daughter’s birthday. And Andrew. And Jayme. And dad. I can do the math. I teach it. One. Two. Three. FOUR.
And she said, “What about YOU?” I had told her I had gained too much weight this past year. Especially last week. With Teacher Appreciation Week. We were showered with food! I needed to pass.
I was so proud of myself for showing such will power. Such restraint. I love those little morsels. In every flavor! Lemon. Carrot. Marble. Vanilla. Strawberries and Cream. And Chocolate Chocolate Chip. I’ve tried them all! They were the birthday dessert of choice when I worked at Jenks West.
Well, there sat a Chocolate Chocolate Chip adorable little bundtlet, haunting me.
I put it in the frig with the two for my men. Both guys had theirs for dessert. The last I checked, mine was still camping out in the frig.
Fat and happy.
That’s me. 🎂😊
I’ll take it to work with me. With every intention of delivering it to someone dear to me at school. But God knows, I’ll most likely be the one to eat it. How can you resist? It’s chocolate! Who could resist one of those precious little things?!
How about you? Could you resist? What’s your greatest temptation? What do you find irresistable?
I’ve got to resist. Lose weight. Eat less. (Desserts.) Exercise more. Fat and happy is not cutting it. I want just the happy.
So here goes. I’ve written it, so I now have to do it. God gave me a way out. I will deliver my little morsel of deliciousness to school and pass on the free gift to another. Share the wealth. I’m now held accountable. By all of you.
Don’t worry. I’ll keep you posted of its lucky recipient. I can assure you, it’s not going to be, fat and happy me! At least this time! 😉
And God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10 :13
