But the reasoning behind it is quite simple - I am living in a time of plenty. When I was growing up, we were almost on the bread line - in other words, money was very scarce
I was often hungry, but fortunately it was only that real hunger that comes from working up an appetite, with no rubbish inbetween meals to fill you up. I was never in danger of starving.But treats were rare, and only ever bought one at a time.
Today, when I ran out of maple syrup, I went to the store cupboard and got another bottle out - and that left another spare. I looked at my neatly ordered cupboard (yep, Number Guy puts the shopping away!) and appreciated once again how fortunate I am that I can buy what I want, and don't have to strike item after item off my list until the bare minimum is left
A cupboard full of food - comfort indeed.
