Apples and Oranges

I love apples. I love their crunchiness, the way their flavor invades your mouth. They are really a delightful experience.

I love oranges. Their smell greets you and makes your mouth water before you can even bite into it.  It’s sweet and juicy.

The metaphor of comparing apples and oranges must go back a thousand years.

I have two sons. Forest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.”  That is true of children as well. I would not trade my boys for any other people in the world. Children can be the result of true synergy, the meeting of two forces in the universe.

Families are fruit salad. Apples, oranges, raisins, cherries, and lots of different kinds of nuts. Enjoy it. It’s good for you.
