"I taught my children to treat life like a big apple. Bite it, chew it, suck it, let the juice dribble down your chin. If you bite a worm, spit it out. But don't stop eating that apple." ~ Arabella Ark, Ceramics Artist, Maui
I like Arabella Ark's take on how we should view life. Sometimes life isn't fair; sometimes it has worms in it. Yet, think about all the moments when it's just wonderful -- juicy, sweet, and delicious.
If we were to stop eating apples just because we found a wormy one, we'd also miss out on those experiences that were beautiful and joyful and fun. Not to mention, miss out on such mouthwatering dishes like apple pie, apple sauce, apple butter, apple crisp, apple strudel, apple cider, toffee apples, to name a few.
So, here's to the apples of life...let's keep eating!
