Far and few

Tonight I decided to reflect on a few things. How many times, have you stopped and really taken a moment to reflect on the simple things in life that make you happy. Simple as a child’s’ giggle, a snowflake, stars on a beautiful night, or that moment that gives you a feeling of “Yeah that makes it worth it!”.  If we are lucky we have someone to share these moments with. So tonight’s blog is about enjoying a simple thing in life. Something that just makes you chuckle. Enjoy!

“Matthew said you were up. Why didn’t you call?”
“I am eating. I ordered the most expensive thing on your menu. And I don’t want it to get cold, so I am eating.”
“Broccoli soup is hardly the most expensive thing on the menu. Besides you don’t like any of the expensive things on my menu. You don’t like prime rib or oysters.”
“Why the hell would you want to eat that crap?”
“Well, they’re very romantic, and the oysters are an aphrodisiac—not that I need it, mind you.”
“Well, you still can keep them; I’ll stick with my soup.”
This had him laughing. It was good to hear him laugh. The times that Mani truly laughed were few and far between.

    We should all take time to reflect on the simple things in life that make us happy or that should make us happy! A bowl of broccoli soup is a simple and happy thing that sounds really good right now – I need to savor such simplicity again and enjoy those simple and wonderful things in life…..
