Broccoli and Kindness
Today, I picked up my copy of Sallie Tisdale’s The Best Thing I Ever Tasted. I need to re-read this book. I liked it in 2004, when I first read it, and I think even more of it would resonate with me today.
Here’s a quote I’d like to share:
“I believe in the value of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and brussel sprouts, but I believe more in the intelligence of the body and the inevitability of decay. I wonder why we talk so much about omega-3 fatty acids and beta-carotene and so little about anxiety and deprivation, kindness and joy, about the long-term effects of the day-to-day struggle to be recognized and loved.”
Yes. Yes. Yes.
