Simple Things in Life and Berry Cherry Pancakes

The simplest things in life are right there in front of us, the fruit of life begins with love. Our love for life. If you cherish it, you also need to respect the privilege.

My posts are usually just full of rambling things about how to make a certain something in a recipe , seems to be the attraction, of course this is a cooking site, duh! ( laugh) so I will promise a recipe after this long winded observation.
I was thinking this morning, its time to write about something a little different today, how amazing life is to wake up everyday, and beat the many odds and obstacles we encounter and are against us throughout the day, and still be lucky enough to come home and talk about it. The obstacles we run into during the day are many to change our lives, and the gamble is so high. We encounter several issues we may never know about, like the many drunk drivers on the road. Do we take it for granted? I think so. So often, too much in a hurry, we don't realize how close we came to harm that day to appreciate our lives on a daily basis. Looking back at all those close calls while driving with reckless drivers on the road, they are texting or talking on cell phones, that alone scares the crap out of me. We definitely need strict laws enforced everywhere. Then how about the many times through the years, almost falling from slipping on something, or not thinking when plugging something in with wet hands, being in a hurry can really hurt you lots of close calls, I will bet you all have your own right?. I guess, we all need to slow down a bit. Never take precious life for granted, love the family and friends you have, appreciate them, make more time for what's important. I am thankful to all my readers, family and friends and hope that you all are having a safe wonderful summer and have wonderful stories to tell each day for decades to come~
