Every time feed Lulu it is a high 5 celebration, or in Lulu's case, high 10. I open the cupboard and drop in some dry food and that's when Lu jumps up and gives me a two paw smack down.
High 5 (x2)! Let's eat! It's gone in about 15 seconds or less so I'm not sure she even tastes it. But we celebrate these moments.
This week was colonoscopy week for me. Now I won't go into all the details but part of the prep includes very little food. On Monday I ate light, knowing what was ahead. After supper it was nothing but liquids (juice, broth, water) until Wednesday when it was nothing at all until after the procedure. So for nearly 2 days there was no food going in and LOTS going out.
Let me tell you I was hungry. And dehydrated. And once I was given the green light, food tasted glorious!
My oatmeal was as Lulu would say a High 10.
Warm with raspberries and a bit of maple syrup...Please sir, can I have some more??
The family took me out for a belated birthday dinner on Friday and at Linguine's I had the Olio pasta.
Rich in garlic, olives, artichokes and mushrooms with penne pasta.
Proverbs 27:7 says "One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry, everything bitter is sweet."
You can apply this to pretty much everything. Christmas is coming and we here in Canada have so much. Sometimes we take it all for granted: food, clothing, gadgets, peace and protection. Hunger for anything is something most of us are not familiar with.
So, if you need a reminder....just go on a fast for a couple days, whether that be food or your phone, car, whatever.
I guarantee you will find everything seems sweet again.
