The Healing Properties of BLT

Over the last year my health issues have been getting the best of me
I found the sweet healing properties of this ...
That's right, I owe my sudden recovery to this delicious Bacon, Lettuce and tomato sandwich.  It is not just any BLT but a bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado and turkey sandwich from this fun dinner in downtown Sioux Falls, SD.
Although I suspect my recovery has more to do with my dining companion than with the actual sandwich.
After nearly a year of letting my physical limitations get the better of me, this wonderful woman and my dear friend suggested we go out for a brainstorming lunch. As a fellow writer and a single mother of two boys, one of whom has major health issues, she completely understands how dealing with the stressors of everyday life and health issues can throw off ones creative processes.

During our brainstorming lunch I voiced my frustration over having let my health limit my creativity to the point that for months I did not take even one photo and worse yet it had been four months since I posted to my blog. I told her, I really wanted to get back to blogging but I didn't feel right about just jumping back in with my usual type of posts without somehow acknowledging my long absence. She smiled and pointed at my sandwich and said "how about, I've been battling some health issues, but this sandwich cured me." 

That dear readers is how I was cured by a BLT!

Sometimes, the answers are right in front of us. It's good to know you have a friend who can motivate you with bacon. That is a good friend!
