This is what was served for lunch on Friday at Kendall-Whittier.
Green eggs and ham.
In honor of Dr. Seuss. And his birthday.
Unfortunately, I brought my lunch. And not my wallet. And it wasn’t a week for me to be on cafeteria duty. So sampling green eggs and ham for the first time was not in my favor. Maybe next year.
It was actually a casserole made of scrambled eggs and cheese and ham. And a little green food coloring for fun…for Dr. Seuss. Most my students that tried it, liked it.
It’s amazing what a little food coloring can do. It can turn a perfectly good dish into something unappealing to most. Because it looks different. Or it can create the most beautiful creations. Look at dyed Easter eggs. Still the same ingredients. Eggs.
It’s all a matter of perspective. How you see it. Do different colors excite you or impede you?
Many of us go through life color blind. Although we see colors just fine, we cannot recognize the differences in color. On purpose. We choose to see others on the inside where it matters, not in color. Skin color.
Let’s all spice up our lives a little. Get out of our boxes. Experience something from another’s perspective. Try some green eggs and ham. And enjoy all the color this life has to offer along the way. Sometimes through our eyes. And sometimes through the eyes of another. Like Dr. Seuss. Or your students.
Perspective. Not wrong or right. Just a different way of seeing things. With your eyes and your mind. Let’s all make ours positive today. And let’s show no partialities to color. God doesn’t. Let’s love them all!
So Peter opened his mouth and said, Truly i ubderstsnd that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. Acts 10:34-35
Love and laughter,
