Life is beautiful and harsh all at the same time..
I need to find a way to cope.. I have all kinds of outlets to chose from and I want to chose the worst ones, even knowing I’ll destroy so much goodness around me. The harsh part in life is confusing and it makes me feel all kinds of things I don’t want to feel..or think. Thinking thoughts.. Thinking things I shouldn’t think. Thinking I can can cover it all up by thinking about things I shouldn’t be thinking.
I realized the simple things that make me happy and bring joy… and yet I have not put any effort towards those goals.. I know how to bring out my creativity and I need to do just that.. who would have thought I’d have my paradigm shift in computer class.
I grew up in a 1980’s frozen dinner, margarine on toast, American cheese, powdered Country Time Lemonade kinda family. Organic? Never heard of it. Locally grown? What’s that? My mom bought me Lunchables,Pringles and Great White Shark fruit snacks. We were quite the packaged goods family. And while I think I turned out okay, I would never in a million years feed my kids the way I was allowed to eat. Never!! So sadly, my little ones will never know the goodness that is a Kellog’s Pop Tart…but they will most likely get a homemade version every so often as a special treat.
When rhubarb’s in season, I can’t help but buy it whenever I find it, and what better upgrade to the classic strawberry toaster treat!! These mini tarts are the perfect single serving of nostalgia (and they’re excellent with milk!) Enjoy!! -xo
