A Civilized Lunch for Mom

with 4 comments


There are days — not too often — when a working mother should take herself out to a nice place, and have a beautiful bowl of soup in civilized surroundings.  She should eat slowly, and sip water, and perhaps talk to a companion, or maybe just look out the window and remember to breathe and to pay attention to what’s happening in her life. 

It’s only when you slow down and look around you that you realize how many truly lovely things there are about being alive. 

This, by the way, is something every human being should do every once in a while — all of us:  women who work in their homes, women who work outside their homes, women with children, women without children and men of those same descriptions.

  2. Hi Sandeepa — Indeed I am! I love to think I’m writing to people who’re right in my kitchen, hanging out, discussing the pros and cons of putting chips in a child’s lunch or where to have Thanksgiving dinner. I’m so glad you visited and added to the conversation! xo, BL

  3. As I look out my window, I see snow falling. So the lovely lunch out has to wait. But the soup looks lovely. I’m going to make some turkey noodle soup this afternoon. I’ll send you a photo. 🙂
