About “The Fancy Water:”
I was at Carrabba’s Italian Restaurant one evening and ordered the expensive bottled water–the good, non-carbonated stuff in the blue glass bottle. The waitress asked me if I wanted anything in the water. “No, thanks” was my response. She said,” well, if you’re going to have the fancy water you may as well go all out!” So I decided to try whatever she was talking about. She brought out a small plate of cherries and lime, lemon, and orange slices. I put it all in my water–and it was luscious!
So is life–we get one of them on the earth, like one glass of fancy water. “Drink life to the fullest” by making the most of every opportunity, of every day, of every relationship. Don’t settle for just having the blue glass bottle.
