This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Food Groups

I went shopping for a new pair of jeans and the lady was telling me that I'm more of "pear"shape so I need this special pair.

I realized that our body shapes are symbolized by fruit. Don't they know that it isn't FRUIT that gives us this body shape? If I ate pears then I wouldn't be so curvy. If others ate apples then they wouldn't be so round. The only body shapes that can rightly own society's label would be "bean pole". I'm sure they eat beans and others foods that taste like poles.

I think we all need to accurately label ourselves.
My shape is more accurately called "cookie dough"--a little lumpy here and there.

I KNOW! I've been told I have an apple shape. So if I'm gonna be an apple then I'd prefer to be a "Candy Apple"!!! hee hee

Not having full length mirrors in the house has been a great blessing. I think the "If you were a candy, what candy would you be?" is a much more accurate question.
