Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

Life is never smooth sailing all of the time. Although I believe that life in general is a wonderful thing, there are always bumps in the road and the occasional crisis. Forrest Gump's mother was right. Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Of course, if life is like a box of chocolates, there's always the possibility of it being sweet and rich. Most days, if you pay attention, you are likely to find the chocolate of your choice waiting for you to savor it's delicacy. Periodically in my daily thoughts I will share one of my life's sweet moments. It may be the joy of an musical experience, the quiet peace of a solitary moment at the monastery, or hanging out with my young granddaughter. The moments I share are only a few of my "Greatest Hits". It is a rare day where I don't have special moments where I savor the sweet taste of whatever chocolate that day has to offer. I'll take a life that is like a box of chocolates any day. The worst chocolate in the box tastes better than brussel sprouts!
