It’s Summertime – and the perfect time for Ice Cream!

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. 

DSCN0734 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.

About Ruthie Curtis

About Ruthie I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.” I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate needs while having some fun along the way. I have lived in Columbus for the past 25 years and have been actively involved in the community. My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens; a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA); a board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and is a member of the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus and the Overdue Book Club.
