HOT CHOCOLATE.........Food for thought

    A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking
    at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor,
    now retired.

    During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress
    in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the
    professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot
    chocolate and an assortment of cups - porcelain, glass, crystal, some
    plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help
    themselves to the hot chocolate.

    When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said:
    "Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving
    behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want
    only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and

    The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the
    hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some
    cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... And then
    you began eyeing each other's cups.

    Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and
    position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and
    contain life.
    The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you
    have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy
    the hot chocolate God has provided us.

    God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people
    don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.
    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
    And enjoy your hot chocolate!"

    It's gorgeous...thick, bubbly and has a nice malt chocolatey taste. Also if you add a little cinnamon (great appetite suppressant!) and/or a little grated will think you are in heaven! :D
