When I saw this word prompt this morning you know what popped into my head?
Yup. Tootsie rolls.
The local dollarama sells 2, 2 packs for $1. This is not a good thing.
When I am ill, or tired, or grumpy, or just generally out of sorts, this is what I crave.
I also crave other things like doritos, Mr. Big chocolate bars, and hickory sticks. But mostly… Tootsie rolls.
I’ve been sick a lot these past two months. Cold, flu, pneumonia, generalized exhaustion, and persistent cough.j
ALL that weight I lost (to help with my overall health)…. well…it’s kinda crept back because… As much as I love tootsie rolls…they certainly like to stick around.
I will have work to do again eh?
I really really need to learn how to get my comfort in other ways.
From reading scripture, to talking with friends, to just relaxing with my family…. but what do I do?
I want a tootsie roll.
How does one break that cycle?
Especially when one doesn’t feel well and the whole world feels like ick because well “I” feel like ick?
I know it doesn’t help that my hubby is the same way… he loves his pastries when he’s ill/tired/out of sorts just like I love my tootsie rolls…
It does sometimes confound me though. God calls me to be BEYOND my temptations. But this one… this one I don’t know how to beat.
