We lose so much of life when we do things subconsciously, that is without appreciation or gratitude. At noon today, I was eating some baby back ribs out of the refrigerator and some barbecue sauce. Now Loretta had boiled those back ribs for two hours, and had bought us some special Jack Daniels barbecue sauce. Eaten separately (as I might in a subconscious manner) they’d be pallid, unimpressive, but together, what a feast! I mean even out of the refrigerator.
But life and many things therein are given to us, free. So are the people who make it what it is. But I know whom to thank – there’s first of all the author of it all (everything has a cause, right?) and then there’s Loretta. Thanks, Loretta.
