One of the things I love...

I took this just before eating, had a little photo shoot :)
One thing that I love with a passion is a mango!  It is mango season here in Belize and on the mainland large mango trees have hundreds of beautiful mangoes ripe and ready to eat.  We get shipments into San Pedro and I take great joy in bartering for the best deal on my mango!  Most of the people that I know have had the great pleasure of tasting one of these delicious fruits, but if you have not had a chance to try one before, I highly recommend it!  It can be the most refreshing taste ever; sweet, light, tangy, just heaven.  I was making mango shakes with some of the students the other day and just thinking about how much I enjoy the simple things in life.  One mango = great joy!  Share it with someone and it becomes a double pleasure.  I do not want to ever miss out on a chance to see life through the eyes of my creator.  I think that when God looks down on us enjoying life, living it fully and even tasting it too, He joins me in a smile :)  So, the next time you have "a moment" and notice something that makes you stop and enjoy life...take it in fully.  Live with a passion that takes your breath away, I know that I am.  :)
