It's That Pivotal Moment, It's Perpetual Bliss

You have these people in your life, right, that you call your mate.  They share in so many mutual joys in life, but not all of them.   This is something you must grapple with in your relationships.   It took some time to come to grips with the fact that someone I loved could smell the steam coming off a freshly baked sweet potato and not well up with excitement as they peeled off the skin.  These are roads you must travel alone and that is perfectly fine, expected and frankly, healthy.  For me, this is but one of them.  Soft, hot, creamy foods with odd textures are downright hated by my mate but adored by me.  So, like today, I sit with my newly created Cranberry relish hot oats and silently revel in their wonderment.  So simple yes but I felt like a scientist in my kitchen, discovering a new element.  To my regular oatmeal, I added a few tablespoons of leftover cranberry relish, toasted walnuts, cinnamon, and banana.  It was a holiday surprise.  It had me floating.  This is the zip zing that oatmeal needs and it makes it a creamy rose color!  Love everything about it!
Merry Christmas to all those walking this road of life!
