Being Happy Now

Posted on 06/13/2008

   Kelly and I believe in the importance of living a happy life.  So many people put their emphasis on a lifestyle which postpones happiness to some unknown future date.  Of course, we all have to work for what we want, but it’s also important—I might even say essential—to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day.  In early summer, we like to spend the twilight hours together on our patio, often with companions, chatting and laughing.  Yes, the new motor circulating the pond water is still too loud, and it’s not fun for friends with hearing aids.  We have many.  No matter.  We’re not complaining, cause there’s always something that needs fixing, but Kelly and I aren’t going to let that get in the way of being happy now.

   On the tomato front, even though we checked carefully and are quite certain our source was not contaminated, Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating will not be serving roma tomatoes for the time being.  We’re monitoring the situation closely and I’ll let you know when things change.

   My daughter, Ruth, who—among other duties—manages our distributors, reports that the new Jambalaya meal is a big hit.  According to Ruth, it “definitely went over VERY WELL” and is already a favorite.

   Unfortunately, Ruth also reported that the new cabbage roll is not receiving rave reviews.  We’re keeping a close eye..  Thanks for the feedback!

   A blind pastor from Mississippi is on our meals plan.  Dr. Ronald Byrd—he is a Ph.D—needs some weight loss.  He reports his appreciation for our Braille menus.  “So many people,” Dr. Byrd told us, “need our program.”  In addition to his church duties, he works for Rehab for the Blind, so I’m hopeful we’ll be able to help many, many of his friends.

   Coming up soon is another of my favorite meals.  The succulent, the refreshing, the tasty, the Chicken Salad Sandwich.  Tender pieces of chicken and celery bits tossed in a creamy dressing on a fresh-baked bun, served with fresh, fresh fruit.

   A nice thing about a Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating meal: you can be confident that it is not frozen and not dried.  Unlike some meals you see advertised.  I’m not naming names.  At least not at this time.

   Our Chicken Salad Sandwich Lunch is delicious.  We use fresh celery bits for crispness.  Some people put sweet pickle relish on their chicken salad.  Celery is healthier and…why sweeten the meal?  Anyway, read the label on many sweet pickle relish brands and you’ll find high fructose corn syrup—a no no—and Yellow Dye Number 5.  You don’t want to put that in your body.
