Today, I am thankful for soup.
Worries go down better with soup. ~Jewish Proverb
Some people will advise that it's way too hot for soup. Too hot to cook a potful from scratch, too hot to watch the soup simmer for a few hours and too hot to eat such a spicy dish.
On any given day, I might agree. But, not today. I have worries a-plenty and must learn to swallow hard each time adversity strikes.
Anyway, it's too late to turn back. I've already thawed the chicken and gathered the other ingredients. Tortilla soup it is. Complete with a generous dose of chili peppers and cayenne pepper.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
