Shot Of The Day

Dance of Chocolate (Greeting Card -- See Cards by Kat)

The Dance of Chocolate

The day before I left for Cuba, I stopped at Costco for medicines that the people in our village needed. Without really thinking about it, I grabbed a large bag of Chocolate Coins—the kind you would give at holidays to children.

In my wildest dreams, I could not have fathomed the utter joy a taste of chocolate can bring to a child.

This little girl is doing what I now call “The Dance of Chocolate.” Her face and hands were covered, and she was laughing one of those deep belly laughs that is thoroughly contagious. Nearly every child had the same reaction.

To regain that sense of wonder at simple pleasures! Wouldn’t that be amazing?
