Sweets for the heart on day 38 of 210 of giving up sweets
Oh, let the tears roll!!!
First of all, have you heard of the “hearties” – those who watched “When Calls The Heart” – What a big deal that show was that I just finished binge watching.
I could barely watch the last episode without blubbering. Good thing my daughter went to a basketball game with some friends so I could sit here with my Kleenex and embarrassingly ball along with this series on Amazon Prime. A friend of mine suggested it so strongly and so mostly I stayed with all of the five seasons because of her. It was a sweet show, but too sweet at times, sooo predictable, but… at the end they got me! I was surprised at how I had gotten used to those characters like they were my close friends. For awhile, I think I was living in Hope Valley – the fictional town where people love each other and pull together during good and bad. Anyhow, if you watch it, remember I said it was really good, but then, it was sorta bad. I had to write this poem after I couldn’t stop crying, I know! So embarrassing!
Of course, I had to weave in my “give up sweets” since it’s what I’m all about right now.
Can a hurting heart
Be tended with sweets,
Ably mended with marshmallow treats,
Cuddled by cupcake or chocolate, in heaps?
Time’s the tender touch it’s needing,
A messy healing, flowing, bleeding,
No sweet salve but only grieving.
It’s bittersweet, without the eating.
By the way! In yesterday’s post, (scroll down to see) I added a picture of myself with my container of Quaker Oat Meal. I about cracked myself up… I think I’m beginning to look a little like him! Vote in the comments if you agree.
