In terms of fruit, my son Satvamrita has only put up with bananas or the occasional orange, for most of his life. Fruit was just too messy to deal with. Now that he’s in Seattle taking care of his father who recently had a stroke, he has decided to expand his fruit horizons. The closest big grocery store to him is in the International District so he is exploring Asian fruit.
At the market he discovered dragon fruit and star fruit, as well as more common staples such as pomegranates, papayas, and persimmons. This is proof it’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks. He’s 47!
A friend who lives at Amma’s Amritapuri ashram in India and I have been writing to each other a lot…using Whats App. She has a sign in her room that says “Seize the day. Live, Laugh, Love” I decided that would make a wonderful motto for me.
I had one friend print a copy of the sign for me and another friend put it on my bathroom mirror so I would see it throughout the day.
I also wrote two staff members from the senior living facility in Woodinville where I am staying now more and told them about my new motto. Their reaction to my announcement and their interaction makes a good contribution to this laughing series.
Pat: LOVE IT ❤️❤️❤️
Although at first I thought it said, “SNEEZE the day”!!!! 🤣
Emily: I LOVE this too!
Thank you Karuna ❤
I wasn’t familiar with LMAO so I looked it up. When I found out it was the acronym for Laugh My Ass Off I looked at my Bitmoji app to see if it was there. It was.
A friend was writing about her yearning to be with Amma again and autocorrect did what autocorrect does.
I so cherish all the times we have had with Amma-. And I feel a constant deep connection with her. And yearn to be in her presence again.
(auto correct (actually)changed yearn into urine 🤣🤣 I guess that means I have to pee)
Thank you all for bringing laughter into my life.
