Momma Says “Life is Like a Box of Chocolates”

“Life is like chocolate: you should enjoy it piece for piece and let it slowly melt on your tongue.” – Nina Sandmann

If all you did was eat chocolate, just like Forrest Gump you would get a stomachache because of the excessive sweetness.

A place in constant sunshine becomes a desert.

We need the not great interludes in life to appreciate the sweet moments.  To have something to savor you need contrast, the bitter and salty experiences that are much more prevalent make those moments all the more memorable.

You remember the candy-colored rainbow, not the storm.

The sweet hug from the toddler, not the meltdowns and tantrums.

Let the moment melt into your heart the way chocolate melts in your mouth.
