It's a snow day in our county, and the children and I make cookies to frost. The girls crowd around me and eagerly reach for the blender whisks after I've made the vanilla frosting.
I hand the whisks down, and I purposefully arrange some extra frosting on each one.
A child licking the blender whisks reminds me of Henry David Thoreau's famous quote about sucking the marrow out of life. Back in July, I wrote about how the "Live with Flair" blog was my way to "live deep and suck all the marrow out of life."
When my daughter licks the blender whisk, I see her searching out every last drop. When she hands it back, it's as if it's been cleaned in the dishwasher.
I want to search out the beauty in this day, relishing every part. God hands me the whisk, and I sit back and enjoy it.
