Are you like me and usually buy your bananas green? It seems they get more yellow by the time you get them home and go bad faster if you buy them ripe. And, I don't like a soggy banana! Yesterday, we were at a local Food City and ran into a precious couple we go to church with. After we had talked for a bit and were parting I said I had to go get my "nanners". The couple had bananas in their buggy, too, and the man said something that made us laugh.....
that his wife wouldn't let him buy green bananas because he might not live long enough to eat them.
We all laughed, but it got me to thinking later on.
Not just about the comment, but about who said it.
This lady has a lot of health problems. She's been in and out of the hospital with heart issues, is on meds for A-fib and right now is wearing a back brace because she's in a lot of pain. But.....
she's one of the most upbeat, optimistic, full of joy ladies you'd ever hope to meet. Her comment about green bananas is something I'm pretty sure I'm going to think about every single time I buy bananas.
Live for today.
Laugh a little (or a lot)!
And, don't buy the green bananas!
