Feeling Sexy

Going to the grocery can produce all sorts of feelings, but I'm sure sexy is not the first thing that comes to mind.

When I'm in the grocery store, in particular in the produce section I feel like I'm doing something GOOD for my family.

When I look at the tomatoes, I remember that my husband loves tomatoes, so I look them over carefully to get the best ones. As I move on to the sweet potatoes, I remember that my son and daughter love sweet potatoes, so to appease them I'll get one or two. If they're on sale I might get more. As I pass by the herbs, I think about how rosemary, thyme, scallion and garlic really enhance the flavors of any dish, so I throw these in my cart also. Kale, spinach, and cucumbers go great in smoothies and keep us regular and when we're regular we're happier so in the cart they go. Squash reminds me of how the Little One devoured this when she was a toddler, so I pick up squash. We've figured out our berry tastes - so if blueberries are in season or on sale in the cart they go.

As I finger a fruit or vegetable, I am simultaneously thinking of the family I have created and that has been entrusted to me. When I think of my family, I feel love and loved and this makes me feel sexy.

Fruits and vegetables bring out the most excitement, meats next and junk food brings out the least excitement.

Because grocery shopping can be a chore this feeling doesn't come over me all the time. But when it does, there's a smile on my face, I'm light on my feet, I feel liberated, attractive, happy, confident and beautiful. And if that isn't sexy, I don't know what is.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. Psalm 139:14 [NLT]

When do you feel sexy?

  1. You know what you are so right! I never thought about it but it is true. Whenever I'm in the produce aisle I feel really good. When I'm in the chips/cookie aisle I know I shouldn't be in it so it doesn't feel as good.

    I really feel good when I'm cooking. Like I'm in my element or something...
