f you have read some of my recent posts, you will know that one of my favorite foods and my major weakness is . . . CHOCOLATE. Yes, I have an addiction to chocolate. There’s really rarely a day I don’t think of it, and crave it. I’ve been trying for the last four weeks to give up both chocolate and sugar. It’s hard. And, I’ve failed a few times, giving myself permission for some special occasions to have some. But, it’s hard to have just one piece. So, I am starting over again, and for Lent giving up sugar and chocolate.
In one way I was rather thankful when I could not buy some chocolate mint cookies from a major organization because I was disappointed with some of their decisions in whom they are supporting. I had a sincere reason for not buying any and it was easy to turn away from that melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
But then, when someone tells me about a See’s candy fundraiser program to raise money for a missions trip, I really want to contribute! And so if I contribute and buy candy, it’s really hard seeing that candy and not having one tiny little bite . . . that turns into eating several pieces . . . and too many pieces! And before “I” know it, it’s all gone! YIKES!
So, if you are my friend in real life . . . please help me! Don’t give me any chocolate. Don’t try to sell me any chocolate. Please don’t give any to my children either. I may just steal a piece from them! Don’t give me sugar-free chocolate either, because it’s like eat the real thing, and I will want more. And if a TV commercial comes on advertising chocolate and you are with me, please, quickly, turn the channel or I may starting digging through my house for some!
Time for some
