An 'aha' moment at 74!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

When I was a little girl, during mom would feed me porridge almost every day. OH, how I hated it. It was gluey, yucky and heavy. I would smother it with brown sugar just so I could get it down. And sometimes gagged even then.
As a teen I would not eat it...and very, very rarely have I eaten porridge since then.

That is until I restarted SparkPeople again in earnest on Jan 1 of this year.

I tried steel cut oats. emoticon
I tried a few ideas I found on Sparkpeople. emoticon
I adapted a little to fit into my life. emoticon

And as I sat eating my 'Porridge' this morning, my dear Mom came to mind, I teared up and I thought 'thank you Mom'. I am really enjoying this bowl of nutritious goodness. emoticon

So maybe the moral to this story, is to try and use some of the good advice your Mom (or Dad) told you when you were very young. It just might apply in your life today.
