Choose to be kind, over being right and you’ll be right everytime.

I had turkey chili for dinner…with cinnamon toast.
What? You’ve never had it before?
Well, I never did either, until, well, I did.
I made this lovely spicy turkey chili and was missing some sweet, moist cornbread to go with it. Before my husband came home, he asked if we needed any groceries. Why, yes I do!
I asked for cornbread. I got cinnamon toast.
My dear husband didn’t grow up here in the US. The classic American dish is lost on him. So when he couldn’t find cornbread, he bought, in his mind, the next best thing. I tried my very best to not look disappointed when I asked what happened to the cornbread.
HIM, I couldn’t find any, so I got cinnamon toast. I love cinnamon toast and it’s sweet like cornbread, and it’s…bread.
ME,Oh, yeah, it is sweet, it’s different.
I bit my tongue, swallowed my pride and ate it. If I’ve learned anything about going through tough times, it’s this, “Don’t sweat the small stuff…and it’s all small stuff.”
If we are:
we have enough.
It’s funny where we learn life lessons, and yet another reason to eat dinner together as a family!
And guess what…it tasted pretty good too!
