Two People And A Horse Are In A Starbucks

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fill In the Blank.”

Actually, it wasn’t a bar, it was a Starbucks. Three people walked into a Starbucks and ordered their Starbucks beverage of choice, there are MANY to choose from. And they drank their drinks, and they laughed and made memories with one another, as well as the other patrons. They did this for hours upon hours. They shared laughs and love and compassion. No one was judged because they didn’t say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or Happy Hannukah. They just laughed and loved like the world is supposed to be. They didn’t get worked up by big things. They didn’t get worked up by small, petty things. They just created relationships and showed love to one another. Is that too much to ask in today’s world?

A Different Flavor Every D

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “32 Flavors.”

I am 32 different flavors all within myself! Very few people ever get to see every side of me. May God bless my wife, because in the four years we have been together, she has seen most of them!!

I took this prompt to an entirely different road than I intended. I wanted to talk about Rocky Road! My ultimate ice cream. But, in all seriousness, I like ice cream so much and I have different cravings for many different flavors. Rocky Road, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookies N’ Cream, Neopolitan, chocolate, Strawberry, and then, there’s the blank canvas days! The days of Vanilla!! Vanilla allows me to be creative. What do I want on it? Or do I just want it plain? Do I stir it up into a melty froth? Or eat it while still frozen?

Life is like that. It has varieties. Some we like and still others we don’t like. What do we do on those days we want chocolate, but only vanilla is on the menu? We doctor it up ourselves and make the most of it!

We all live in the same ice cream shop, planet Earth. But, we don’t all have access to the same flavors. Imagine if we all shared all of our flavors, good and bad. There may be someone out there who can benefit from the sharing, maybe we all could.
