    Default Poem by a friend...”Crisis Coping”. you chocolate lovers will like the last line !


    I need strength to soldier through.
    I’m doing what I have to do.
    Quiet prayers said through the days
    Bring me solace in many ways
    Pleas for safety of family and friends,
    Health workers, grocers, the list never ends.

    While my prayers join with others in need
    And nourish my aching soul indeed,
    It’s chocolate that feeds the body’s craving
    Combined with food stuffs I’ve been saving.

    A bit of chocolate every day
    Sees me through, although I say
    It’s a placebo that’s for sure.
    Wish it could contribute to a cure.
    Creamy milk or hearty dark
    Shot with almonds in tasty bark,
    Surrounding raisins smooth and round
    Delight my tongue without a sound.

    While I await the crisis end,
    Prayers to heaven I will send,
    Enjoy a candy or maybe two.
    Prayer and chocolate will see me through.
    ​Ann Favreau 2020

    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says:"Oh Crap, She's up!"
