March 19th 2020 Alphabet Soup

alphabet Soup

In these changing times I look for comfort food from my childhood. Alphabet soup was a favorite with my family. Mother used the soup as a spelling challenge. We were to fish macaroni letters on our spoon to spell our name or another word to express how we were feeling. We could all take time to look in our comfort soup bowl and see what we find there. Maybe the word share is there to recall and connect with others in your community that may need a listening ear. You may find the word care and you can check on neighbors that live alone and may need a item from, the store or a pet walked. Finally as you sip the last of the broth may you find the letters love , just for you.

Alphabet Soup
an acrostic Poem

All people need comfort.
Living in these changing times,
People long for the normal.
Health is an illusion.
Agreeing to keep social distance.
But wishing for a connection
Each person longs for a touch
Tabled all social events.

Simple connections mean so much.
Our opportunities daily given,
Understanding, caring and sharing.
Psyche fed by connections to others.

  1. Carol–What a clever and endearing message you have shared in this third blog post!  I greatly enjoyed your memory piece and the accompanying acrostic on the same theme.  This post certainly deserves an “A-plus.”

    With gratitude and good wishes, Alice and Willow
