Hot Dogs and Strawberry Shortcake

hot dog

 

Why is it that we have to be reminded that life is short?

Why is it that we have to be reminded that life is fragile?

Why is it that we have to be reminded to live our lives every day like today might be our last?

We have a family member who has terminal cancer.  It reminds us that although we may be healthy today, that our health could change for any of us tomorrow.  Not just because of cancer, it can be any number of things.

We live our lives and somehow we forget that tomorrow is not guaranteed.  We make plans for next month, next year or “in the future”.

Today we threw our diets out the window.  We weren’t counting calories, or pounds, or cholesterol or blood pressure.

Today we ate Hot Dogs for dinner, and a big cereal bowl filled with home made shortcake biscuits, strawberries, and freshly whipped cream piled inside and on top of the shortcake.

It was over the top,

it was fabulous,

it was necessary!

  1. So very sorry to hear that you have another family member in such a sad state. Thinking of you – and perhaps I’ll eat some strawberry shortcake in the next day or two in support of you. Sending hugs.
