Read a great quote today:
"There will come a time when we will sit down to the banquet of our consequences." --Robert Louis Stevenson
I made a vat of pasta yesterday for my children and after they were finished with their portions, i went to dump it in the garbage because i didn't want to eat it. My son said "Mommy, you never waste good food". I also had a flash of my mother-in-law in the back of my head, the same horrified look she has had when I throw out an egg yolk.
I am someone who has an extraordinary amount of perspective. I did picture the 3 boys in India in the garbage looking for food as I threw away the pasta. It's a hard thing to reconcile.
