“The Fish”

I got the biggest (almost 12 inches long) grilled red snapper tonight for dinner. I told my husband that I don’t have rice to eat it with and he said to just eat the fish. Upon hearing that, I couldn’t help but reminisce my life in the past and told him my story. He then jokingly said, “well, dried fish must be good for you because you turned out to be a nice woman.” Haha for that…

Growing up poor, I never had the chance of eating a whole big fish for myself alone because there were so many mouths needed to be fed too. I remember, my grandmother used to divide a 5-inch dried fish into small parts so that others will be able to taste it too, with rice or grits of course!

With all that being said, I couldn’t be more thankful of the kind of life I have or where I am now. I am in a much better place on earth, I shall say. I am blessed and grateful more than ever. Although we are not rich but at least I can eat whatever I wanna eat. I have a comfortable life, a wonderful family and a great marriage. Thank You, Lord! You are awesome… you greatly changed my life more than I imagined.
