Today, I baked a chocolate cake. It was soooo good.
I used the recipe on the back of the Hershey’s Coco container. It’s quick and easy and because of that, it has been my go-to chocolate cake recipe for awhile now.
While I was baking today, I thought about Milton Hershey and the stories I’ve heard about all of his failures, some quite devastating, before he found success with the chocolate. And as I ate the cake that I topped with vanilla ice cream and Hershey’s chocolate syrup, I was quite thankful that Mr. Hershey persevered.
I hope someday someone will be thankful that I persevered.
Oh, and I’m thankful for chocolate cake.
