Smoothie Smiles

April 30, 2007

smoothie_smile.jpgAnyone who knows me, knows how much I adore SMOOTHIES. And my fresh ones are the best!…to me =). Ever since I changed my diet last year, and hubby got me my Magic Bullet, smoothies have been a regular morning [or anytime] staple for me.

So, the other morning, I’m diligently making my smoothie. Put in the ice, Omega-3 fish oil, fresh strawberries and blueberries, and added my Mango Tango Smoothie base. Sometimes I add vitamin C’s or wheat grass tablets to help my iron. Just a busy little bee, throwing in all the fresh goodness I could find. When…

I look at the Magic Bullet, and my smoothie is checking me out! [*sidebar* Remember the line from The Wiz…Tin Man says, “That beast….He’s checkin us out…”…neway, somebody will get it LOL *end sidebar*]. Right there on the side of the cup…A smile!

Now me being a woman of imagination and creativity, you know I had to go with this…create a moment out of thin air….”What’s that? You’re as proud of my progress as I am?”

With three dis-eases diagnosed in one month last year (a sista was falling apart for real…and I’ve never been sickly), something had to change in my mind, body (diet), and spirit. Things have changed, and are changing…for the better. Making my smoothie smile…

Thinking back on those times, I have to pause and put a PRAISE right here. Thank you God! God be adored!….He is my Sun, with healing in His wings…. To this day, I can’t figure out how one doctor could feel the lumps, diagnose breast disease, and a month later, I walk out the office with a clean mammogram [I’ve got both reports in writing…the before and after will be in the book as a testament to God’s healing grace]. One health challenge down, two manifestations to go. This makes my smoothie smile….

You know, it’s actually not the smoothie smiling at all, but it’s a reflection of Me, my discovery and embrace of self, my Love for me. With blueberry eyes and strawberry smiles, I support myself lovingly and say, “I’m so proud of you!…see this thing to the end, girl!” Ashe.Selah
