if everyone had food like this.
That was my cherished husband’s comment as he ate dinner this evening.
It was a simple dinner… an omelet made with eggs from our chickens, left over vegetables from our garden that I had cooked last night, herbs from the garden, and cheese plus fresh corn on the cob and fresh ripe peaches sliced into a bowl. It was a symphony in yellow, and it was delicious, if I say so myself. No added sugar, but my lips sure tasted sweet after I finished eating!
Yes, the majority of my garden is indoors, sheltered from the frequent frosts, high winds, and hail storms. Besides, the raised beds are much easier on an old lady’s back, hips, and knees!
But, back to dinner and my dear husband’s comment.
I had to remind him that there are too many people in the world who are not willing to share. That, I believe, is the true cause of contention and wars. People who are unwilling to share with those around them and who think that if they have more than someone else, that somehow makes them “better” – at least in their own eyes. What a sad existence!
There is so much joy to be found in sharing whatever wealth we have. Any other course leads only to frustration and sorrow and anger and depression.
