A look back on Sweetest Day. . .
The day begins as usual with the smell of coffee brewing at the crack of dawn. With each pulse is called forth thoughts of not wanting to wait another minute to enjoy the enticing brew. I stretch and yawn, then, smell bacon! What could possibly be more wonderful that when the hubby brings on a surprise breakfast all of his own cooking! The aroma of sizzlin’ bacon is enough alone to whet the appetite. A nice omelet laced with red peppers and onion does its best to outdo the bacon with its own scent of succulentness. Creamy grits bubble with a whiff of fresh corn and bits of sharp cheddar cheese top it off. Add a slice of fresh tomato along with butter toasted English muffin and the scene is complete. Almost…
The table is set and on comes the plate, not empty, but full. Blessings are said in thankfulness for both the food and the ‘chef’. I take a bite and see the word ‘Chocolate’. Cool! I love chocolate. The next bite uncovers the word ‘Mocha’ with yet another yielding ‘Latte’. Then, it starts all over again but this time it is bite, bite, bite, ‘chocolate, chocolate, chocolate’.
I start to laugh and hubby asks what is so funny. In reply, I explain the breakfast is wonderful and the food tastes GREAT but once the food is gone all I will have left is a craving for chocolate!
With a grin, outstretched arms yield a box of chocolates with a note saying “Happy Sweetest Day!”
I LOVE surprises!
