Thankful Thursdays

For simple little pleasures.

We’re all very much in tune with the big things for which we’re most grateful: our health, our family, and our job. God knows 2020 heightened our perspective meter in that regard. My posts lately, for example, have been on the extra-deep side of deep thought, to say the least. So today I’m lightening the mood.

Each morning, while enjoying my breakfast of champions, I thank God for it. It’s great to be able to have something I enjoy so much so readily available to me, and I never want to take that for granted. We’re so fortunate to have a stocked pantry. One of my kids, and I won’t mention any names, has the habit of standing in front of the fridge and muttering “There’s nothing to eat.” ? “Mira, there’s plenty in there to eat and many are dying of hunger,” is my immediate response. By now they just say it to bug me ‘cause they know that’s one of my pet-peeves. Granted, I seldom ever over-stuff our pantry or fridge (unless we’re on hurricane mode, or it’s March 2020), but really, what wouldn’t the less fortunate give for even one of the items in there? We’re so blessed.

Anywho, I said I was gonna keep it light so here it goes. Thankful today for three of my favorite go-to items in my pantry — café, sugar, and evaporated milk. Together they make a mean “Cortadito” – My breakfast of champions…and 3:00 p.m. snack.?

Which three favorite little pleasures are in your pantry or fridge that you’re thankful for today?


On a separate note, I dedicate today’s post to Nilda Pedrosa, a friend who was summoned from this world way too soon. She was 46. Our memories with her and of her will always be sweet. Nildita, may you enjoy your seat at His side. Rest In Peace.
