Jewel despised the free lunch. She’d rather starve than beg for cakes.
It took her aging nights and sweating feet, to own a bakery.
She was told plenty of times “you’re too ambitious for a woman.”
And her answer always remains “I can’t live in the shells and shadows some women I know, live in.”
She baked her own cakes. And also fed many, especially her own. When she died, every one remembered her as the woman who couldn’t live off a man’s pockets.
The woman who made other women want to own a bakery.
Jewel was a woman who would give anything to have everything but the “ordinary.”
