Summer = ice cream!
For kids who have life threatening allergies things are very different. Dairy or nut allergies make a simple summer ritual almost impossible.
The purpose of this post is to recognize the importance of savoring and appreciating the little things that make life so beautiful and good.
Getting to walk into an ice cream place and pick any flavor, topping and cone without fear of an emergency trip to the hospital (or worse) is a luxury most children get to experience as a regular part of summer. Thanks to A La Mode we did too!
We are truly grateful for the opportunity to have an experience that most take for granted and recognize the importance of appreciating the little things that bring joy.
As you go about your summer rituals and experiences, take a moment to imaging what it would be like if you weren't able to do whatever it is you enjoy and then savor and appreciate the joy and awesomeness of the experience! Taking time to enjoy living in the moment and savoring those little things that often get taken for granted...
and if you happen to find yourself on the upper east side of NYC, definitely try the ice cream!
