The last 24 hours were a little rough. Got to keep looking up and keep looking!
I have found that when you go through a major change in your life you need a focal point; a constant in a way. Like in LOST when Desmond was loosing it on the freighter (sorry if you’re not a LOST fan – don’t want to loose you) – he needed a “constant”. In his case it was Penny, the love of his life. Well, in my life since I moved to this “new land” it’s whatever reminds me of where I came from. Just a simple little reminder of what was and then I can look to what is and what is to come.
Too Weird? I don’t think so. It is something familiar. So, today while feeling a little out of sorts I wanted tacos. Not Taco Bell kind of tacos, they can be had anywhere. I wanted something that reminded me of Southern California.
I spent most of my adult married life in Southern California and South Jersey. So it had to be tacos smothered in fresh cilantro.
I thank my wonderful Lord that there is a small Taqueria here that sells just that! Boy were they good and yes, the comfort food works! Changed my outlook on the moment and I was able to see deeper and more healing things in a better perspective.
Ah, the small comforts of life that aren’t related to what we are going through but definitely have a wonderful sweet effect!
