LONGING

Have you ever wanted something so badly you could taste it?  It happens to me all the time. For example, food calls my name. Sometimes even, it yells JOYCE and doesn’t quiet down until I go and see what the heck it wants.  Too often we go because the calling is just too persistent.  The next time though, I’m going to think of my granddaughter’s disappointed little face, knowing she just wasn’t going to get that ice cream.  And maybe it will inspire me to walk away, just as she had to that day.  Even though what we want is often within our reach, we have to realize that sometimes, we just can’t have it.   

 Longing for something we can’t have is such a hard life lesson to learn.  It’s one of the first I realize, now that I’m looking at Alexa’s picture. Her face shows just how painful it is.  I’m sure I must have looked like her a few times myself.

 Hearing the Rolling Stones tell us “You can’t always get what you want”, doesn’t make it any easier.  But, as my cousin pointed out, We get what we need.”
