Bright pink Twinkies with coconut.
I promise I haven’t had one in about three years.
But, the other day as I was standing in line at the grocery store with my daughter and she haphazardly proclaimed: “Ohhh, these are my favorite”, while eyeballing a hostess cupcake; I inwardly smiled and was immediately envisioning bright pink Twinkies with coconut.
I got caught up in a moment of gratitude.
Grateful for my daughter’s company and accompanying confession.
Grateful for the gift of taste buds.
Grateful because often when I consume things they taste like a place or a day…
It is a wonderful way to be excessively grateful (if that’s possible) on any given day.
Yes, that means I enjoy eating:) Especially, with people that enjoy eating a good meal as well.
Sometimes, most of the time, it’s the company that makes the meal so grand.
So, bright pink Twinkies… they taste like summer time!
And, the Very Berry hibiscus cooler, at Starbucks…definitely tastes like sunshine!
Sometimes Hawaii 🙂
That crunchy sweet cinnamon concoction on coffee cake… for sure, like Christmas!
Oh, and chicken pot pies, like a warm blanket while I’m curled up on the couch.
I could go on… but, I won’t:)
Here’s hoping today finds you deep in the throws of gratitude, whatever it may be you’re feasting on.
