Today was the first day of pick-up for my fall farm share.
When I walked up, the students told me about Delicata winter squash and swiss chard and about all the hot peppers that I could taste, right then and there. If I dared.
After I got my bag of goodies, I watched the action. Families and teachers coming up to get their goods. Students talking about the produce.
The farmer, a dear friend from college, connected with one of my schools. A win-win situation – she sets up a CSA, students and families get access to great food. I was just the middle-person.
As I laughed with teachers, students, my friend – a warm sense of contentment washed over me. This is what it is all about.
This life, this journey of ours, is all about those small moments of sharing a laugh, gasping over a hot pepper, making connections with people through a smile, a shared moment. It is those moments that make it all worth while.
What have been your little things lately? Your moments?
