Food, family and forgiveness.

Whether we are rich or poor, food brings our hearts and minds together. The recipe which creates a permanent bond between two people. That foams layers of memory that never crumbles.

Big arguments between us and our parents may end up badly. It’s true that not all parents are perfect that may lead to a rough upbringing. To bring about a reconciliation is a better option, I believe – like it or not. Besides, our parents are irreplaceable.

Not every happy ending starts with a happy beginning. It’s like not everyone is a good cook, but anyone can cook. When we cook for the first time, the food does not often tastes so good like what we see in live cooking shows. It has to be readjusted so it will be better. Thus, we have to change, change and change; and take chances to succeed in life. That’s the secret recipe!

Sometimes when things are falling apart they may be actually be falling into place.

Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness is a magnificent book written by Sasha Martin.

The power of love between siblings

What makes us siblings different from strangers.¬†We don’t have to greet to meet. We fight and forgive, but never forget. We treat one another like best friends or enemies. But during a family gathering, we just push whatever it is that’s standing between us aside and enjoy each other’s company like nothing ever happened.

The way we communicate. Oh, it’s extraordinary. The minute we see each other’s face, bam! we get the signal. I wonder if there’s a scientific reason for that. Not that our brains are connecting directly anyway.

No matter how many miles we live apart, we are always have a strong relationship. The power of love between siblings is truly an infinite.
