Life is short.
Get the lobster roll.
Next week will be six years since my mom passed away. She was a born-and-bred Bostonian who loved lobster rolls almost as much as her beloved Red Sox team.
The day before she died, I bought her a lobster roll (a bit tough to find in Central Virginia!) which was the last food she ate by mouth. It was such a poignant moment that I wrote about it that night, not realizing she would pass away the next evening.
Yesterday I saw a Facebook post that Saltys Lobster & Co. was coming to town and would have lobster rolls available from a food truck by the Libbie Mill library from 5-7 PM. The timing was just too perfect to miss. The line was long, but good things come to those who wait.
So much has happened since then, but it still feels like the blink of an eye.
I’m reminded again how important it is for us to embrace life in the moment. Find your joy and share it! You never know when a moment will become a memory, captured only with a photograph or words put to paper.
Many thanks to Saltys Lobster & Co. for the walk down memory lane and one wicked awesome lobster roll.
This one’s for you, mom!
