I see these and I must have some. Even when I don’t purchase them I stop and stare. There are lots of things I crave. But I also appreciate that I recognize that cravings should just be that. Not all-consuming or detrimental to yourself and others. That’s why treats like this are special. They aren’t had often. Many times, not at all depending on priorities at various points in life.

For instance the things one might not get when raising a family. Why, because anyone with children knows, you want to do your best to provide for them. To see them make a better lot in life than you were able to accomplish. To see them happy. To provide them opportunities.

So instead of the chocolate covered strawberries you get a pack of strawberry licorice.  I’m also fortunate enough to enjoy both equally because it could also be nothing. Those who have not had, or had to work hard for just a little, know appreciation.

So while cravings are nice and good to have. Don’t get too caught up in them.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
