Eat, Love, Pray

Stewed Chicken with Quinoa

Brother Dave's Birthday gravesite. His family shared photos of their celebration of his memory

I don't understand how to selfie.  I have not practiced much but once or twice a year I'll see a great photo of someone and think I could pull that off but turns out, no, no I can't.  First of all you don't take them in the mirror but otherwise my nose always looks twice it's size. 
So my niece shared a story on group text about my brother's love of chocolate cake, her dad who passed.  So at work that day, a coworker coincidentally brought an entire box of these sweet little cupcakes from Baked, mostly chocolate.  I had two like a maniac.  Another blessing was that we had food catered in from El Mexicano, the most tasty Mexican take out I've had in Brooklyn.  I thought of brother Lobo and how in Catholic school you brought treats in for your birthday to give to your classmates.  I always loved that idea because it taught kids that you could actually share and give instead of get on your special day.  Possibly brother sent these blessings!

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
