My husband, Darrell had a web-based ordering flop. Desperately seeking dark chocolate chai tea, he accidentally ordered a $10.00 candy bar (plus s&h charges).
Not wanting to waste his “mistake”, each of us had a taste. “Blech” was my reluctant review. He nodded the same sentiment as he left the room. C’mon, who really wants to admit that an expensive piece of culinary anything…was awful? He mumbled something about cheap chocolate being the best.
I knew how to remedy my taste bud situation. I went to his chocolate hiding place (like I didn’t sniff it out 2 months ago) and got myself 3 small pieces of reasonably priced chocolate. This brand (unlike the $10.00 kind) has sweet sentiments printed on the inside of its red foil cover. I love being blessed with pearls of wisdom written in wrapping.
I left the room for a moment, and by the time I got back, my husband had thrown my “ hidden treasures” in the garbage. I dug my red foil fortunes out of the trash, so I could read them again. “A smile is the perfect gift.” “The best Holiday decoration is a smile.” My favorite,”Joy is contagious.”
Sometimes we just must dig thru the trash…to regain our treasures.
Blessings of great tasting inexpensive chocolate and treasures not too hard to find,
