Eating healthy is a big to-do in our household. Fresh vegetables, whole grains, and organic fruits are mainly what our fridge and cabinets are made up of. But every now and then, we throw caution to all things healthy and spice up our lives with our favorite fast food item or something boxed off the grocery store shelf.

Rolling into this third trimester of pregnancy, my cravings are nothing short of “Oh wow!” I could wake up at three in the morning desiring a big bowl of watermelon and by midafternoon crave a salad with corn chips and seasoned fries. Lord have mercy.

I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on it either because I had just a few bucks in my pocket to pick up a few things and head home.

This coupon served as my sweet reminder this morning. I’m only grateful I had enough discernment to slow down in the moment and catch what was waiting for me.

Slow down and seize your intentional moment…
