Per my last post – the truth is I MUCH prefer poached eggs to beef goulash. In fact, I’m not even sure I actually like beef goulash.
However, on further examination of the situation, I realize the whole thing, as usual, has nothing to do with the food. I eat lunch with Laura all the time and her truck driver appetite doesn’t bother me in the least.
But, on Saturday, I saw starkly how much better Laura is doing than I am personally and professionally. She loves her great man, her great job and her wonderful community of great friends. In comparison, I’m lagging way behind.
I love Laura and of course, want all these wonderful things for her. I just wish I were manifesting some of them for myself too. I don’t covet her lunch special; I want her life!
It’s never about the food, is it?
