Considering Eggs on Toast

This is exactly what they looked
When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider:
God has made the one as well as the other.
Ecclesiastes 7:14

I had an egg on toast for breakfast. And then 2 pieces of cake and 2 scoops of ice cream for dessert. It was a good choice.

On Wednesdays I clean a house for an older couple who live a little outside town. It’s a gorgeous home with lots of thick carpet (harder to vacuum) and big windows (so. much. windex.) and sort of out in the woods (spider webs are my enemy). Plus, every time I clean there I get a free lunch!

And it’s an exquisite lunch, too.  A hearty turkey sandwich on the best bread, some fruit or chips and—always and the best part—a dessert. Today it was a sublime brownie with nuts on top. I positively slobbered over myself.

Then I mowed another lady’s lawn and helped her replant a few plants at various places around her garden. Beautiful weather, easy tasks, and—always the best part—two muffins as part of my payment. I believe I have worked for this woman on about ten different occasions and she has only once sent me away without food.
I only wish I was this competent

Then some running. Then some violining. Then some volleyball. Then some Bible. Then some blog.

It was a good day and I thank God for that.

But I also wanted to thank the bakers and cooks out there, the heroes of my world. Cookies, muffins, scones, sandwiches: they all make life so much better. I can’t do what you do—I have no desire and the last time I cooked, I actually set something on fire. So, thanks, and keep making life awesome for the rest of us!

  1. I enjoy toast, and I love fried eggs, but it took me 21 years to place my eggs ON toast.

    I too, am thankful for people who make the food I eat!
