A while ago I stumbled across this Estonian proverb. It struck me as oh-so-true and I have thought about it often since:
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
This morning, I am satisfied. I have everything I need if just for today.
My pre-dawn breakfast: Farm fresh eggs, carefully basted, served on top of toasted, hearty homemade bread spread with rich, yellow butter made from the milk of grass-fed cows. The thick-shelled brown eggs were laid a couple of days ago by the neighbor’s chickens, yolks bright and firm.
Sprinkled on top, a tiny bit of Parmesan Reggiano. The cheese mixed with the runny yolks is a thick, delicious sauce with the perfect amount of rich saltiness.
Full, satisfied and ever so grateful. How much richer can I be? What little pleasures made your day a little bit nicer?
