The alarm clock greets me in the morning to wake up. I look out my window to see grey skies with maybe a patch of blue. My phone says the weather should only reach 56°F. I decide to make it a dress day. I’m not going anywhere special or have big plans. Nope. I just wanted to wear a dress to brighten the grey sky day. I love how my dress makes me smile as I twirl and spin. I even add a necklace, just because.
We don’t need a reason to get dressed up or wear something you love. If it brightens your day then wear that dress, necklace, jersey, jacket, or even a certain pair of underwear. (However, you may want a set of eyes to ensure your ‘happy’ outfit is fit for others to see.) You never know, grey skies may turn blue with the right attitude.
What item always makes you happy to wear?
Summer is almost officially here and that brings delicious summer fruit. I always check the produce section in the hopes that I’ll see my favorite beautiful, bright red cherries. (I prefer Bing over Rainer.) When my eyes catch cherries I then look at the price. If the price is too high, I wait. My cherry hankering can be satisfied another day.
The word ‘hankering’ is quite fun. You’re probably thinking, ‘How can a word be fun?’. Well, because I said so. My desire for cherries is more than just ‘wanting’ them. ‘Hankering’ means to have a craving or longing. Perhaps some may argue that my use of the word ‘hankering’ is extreme for a cherry desire.
When I bite into that bitter-sweetness I know summer has begun. Luckily, my hankering for cherries has been satisfied. Delicious. Summer is here. I may share my cherries with you.
What do you have a hankering for?
