"It's payday girls. Let's celebrate!"
"Ooh...let's do TCBY's Yogwichs."
"No, I want McDonald's French Fries!"
"How about Starbucks, guys?"
We finally settle on Starbucks and sink down into the cozy corner chairs with our favorites.
"Yum, I love these," Meredith says, licking the whipped cream off the top of her Caramel Frappaccino."
"Oh no, these chocolate chunk cookies are the best!" Michaela says between mouthfuls.
"You're both wrong. The only way to go is Passionfruit Lemonade Tea," Madison said.
Why is it that it seems the only way to celebrate in the Cowman Household is with food? We love food! We love ice cream. We love pizza. We love coffees. Is there any other way to celebrate?
Hm...Logically speaking, there are lots of ways a family can celebrate. Even as I write this thoughts of Thanksgiving spreads flash before me, thoughts of our "Morning Christmas Casserole" and Christmas Eve Subs after our Christmas Eve service. Boy, it all involves FOOD!
Bu.u.t, but there really are lots of ways a family can celebrate - other ways. We love going to movies....BUTTERED POPCORN. We love taking walks on crisp fall or spring days...HOT CHOCOLATE with WHIPPED CREAM. We love lighting cinnamin candles, turning down the lights, playing quiet music and reading our favorite books...YES! NO FOOD!
Celebrations DON'T have to involve food!
The only way to celebrate is with food? That's a lie!
