What to do when good things end

"JanetPerezEckles-Typepada"Goodness gracious, how can that happen? In all the years of hosting friends in my home, I never had an embarrassing moment like this.

For my gathering last Sunday afternoon, I prepared my favorite, delicious dessert. In a large, glass bowl, I layered pieces of yummy, sweet stuff.

In the midst of the ooh’s and aah’s after each bite, a guest who arrived a little late made her way to the counter where my beautiful display sat. But to my horror and her disappointment, the bowl was empty. Gulp.
