Plain Donut

I’m a plain donut. Plain cake they call me – no frills, no thrills. The kind most often overlooked. Ordinary. The 13th in a baker’s dozen. The last to be chosen, or eaten. I sit on a shelf amidst a host of others… beautiful, delectable, delicious, glamorous – brothers and sister donuts. Some have pretty colored crinkly sprinkles, while others are stuffed with juicy jellies oozing from their insides. There are rich and tasty cream-filled ones, and everyone’s favorite – CHOCOLATE! Some of my brothers and sisters get all puffed up because they know they are beautiful – showoffs! But I’m plain cake. I’m not the maple bar, or glazed old-fashion.

I’ve seen so many popular donuts come and go over time, before I’m ever selected. Even the crumb donut – what kind of name is that? – is more popular. I sit on a shelf all day long while the others come and go. You’d think I’d get chosen before the devil’s food donut – but noooooo. I’m even one of the good guys, but the devil’s food donut gets the nod over me sometimes. It all seems so unfair.

Will I ever get noticed? Will anyone select “me?” Does anyone want to know “me?” But then… I eventually come to realize my time will come one day. I know thru it all I need to remain the donut that I am, not try to become something I’m not. I wasn’t made to be fancy or creamy or mapley or glazed. I wasn’t made to be a long bar or a twist. It’s not how I was designed.

My MAKER, the donut baker, made me wonderfully and carefully… to be exactly who I am. Just like the other donuts He made, He used exactly the right ingredients to make me – the same as all of my brothers and sisters. He knew just what He was doing when He made each of us. I was part of HIS plan! Knowing that makes me feel not so ordinary anymore. One day someone special will come along and select me. The timing will be right. I will be free to just be me. The right person will know “me.” But then… my MAKER knew that all along.
