It's just another soap that didn't turn out how I planned. The color, the scent, it's all off. Uggh. However, it smells good, not the creamy vanilla I was going for but still a lil' vanilla mixed with a hint of spearmint. It has a light soothing background with a touch of woods. I know sounds weird, right? But it really isn't. But, it is different.

I tell you what, me and cold process soap, we are the same. You just never know what you’re gonna get. You can try to mold us any way you like, but in the end, we have a mind of our own. We can be sweet and sassy, we can become sour and lose our zest, we can fill a room with a beautiful fragrance, and when not used properly, we can cause a searing sting.
Vanilla Makes Me Happy Soap. This was the ugliest soap I made this year. Nothing turned out the way I planned. That’s normal for me, however, I didn’t change the name. I just left it as is. To be honest, it’s hasn’t sold, I had forgotten about it. But this morning someone ordered one. As I went to pull it from the dark closed box I had put it in I was shocked to see that it had morphed into this sultry beautiful soap.
All I could think of was how wrong I’d been about it. Yes, it had moments it was ugly and didn’t live up to my expectations, but given enough time and a chance, it turned into something beautiful. I missed its potential. I thought of throwing it out. Instead, I just cast it aside. Isn’t that how people see us sometimes? They miss our potential. They break us down and throw us out like piece of trash.
Thank God, that in my darkest times, God continues to see my possibilities. Thank God, that He’s still working on me and will never cast me aside because I didn’t live up to His expectations.
Vanilla Makes Me Happy Soap. And now Vanilla Makes Me Thankful.
