The sweetness that comes always

She went to withdraw some hidden cash that she didn’t know existed. Drove to the bookshop for a text book, that ended up adding some revision books for each her children. Hungry, meticulously she went through the menu and consciously chose her lunch based on the price of food. The food was so good.

Walking back to her car she found street vendors selling churros. She must have them dunked in cinnamon sugar. She loves cinnamon. It’s therapeutic and heals somewhat of her. She thought carefully about them churros. She felt they were too expensive of a treat at 70 cents per stick. She closed her eyes and bought 10 sticks of them.

To think that at one point, she only had $2.50, and now her total purchase today was more than that. That $2.50 is a benchmark for her.

She clears her throat simultaneously along with her mind. A blank new page is laid in her head.  It draws a little taste of bitterness. She smiles. Because she knows there is sweetness that comes after every bitter end.
