Today is Five Minute Fridays
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from my week Instagram feed that match the words of this week.
I love S'mores, it may be on the verge of obsessive. Everything about them melds to a flavor I find irresistible. But they are mess to eat. The perfectly toasted marshmallow oozes out from between the chocolate and graham cracker, quickly coating your fingers in hard to remove stickiness. Once the chocolate warms up the whole thing starts to slide apart and chocolate will inevitably drop out on to whatever clothes are available. Then holding tightly you go to take that first bite just to have the cracker brake into pieces raining crumbs down around you.
But the taste makes it all worth it. The perfect combination of crunchy, sweet, bitter (we use good chocolate) and gooey.
That to me is life. It's suppose to be this messy goodness. Some season are going to be the sweet gooeyness of the marshmallow. Sticking to our memories to savor years later.
Sometimes it will be the bitter sweetness of the chocolate. Hitting us upfront with all it's flavor but fading to the background.
There will also be the time in life where everything seems to be crumbling down around us. But that is what makes us stronger. Like the s'more we could not savor the sweet and the bittersweet without the hardship.
So I savor each bite, tasting all.
