I was given a menu for lunch at a wonderful little place in Highlands, NC called Sweet Treats. It had an enticing picture of several ice cream treats on the front cover. I looked a little closer and noticed that the copy of my menu had something written on the front right next to the picture of several yummy ice cream cones. The words that were written there in cursive were … LIFE IS LIKE AN ICE CREAM CONE, YOU HAVE TO LICK IT EACH AND EVERY DAY.
Wow, what a statement. And to think that a small sentence written on the front of a menu for an ice cream place, no less, could be so profound. We all have different lives – like the different and varied flavors of ice cream, but … the way we deal with the “flavor” that we have, ordered or not, says a lot about who we are. So, the next time you think that things in your life are overwhelming and just too much to “lick”, remember the sentence written on my menu. But don’t forget, Enjoy that ice cream cone … but be careful not to let it drip!!!
Sign, Sign …. Everywhere a Sign — even on the front of a menu! Don’t forget to take a look at the signs all around you. They can be a guide for our lives, too.
