Act 10

Tonight I had a rare treat - I got to go out to eat!  What's extra nice is that it was a restaurant that I actually could eat at - the wide variety of options was wide enough to accommodate my allergies.  Even better was that I got to enjoy the meal with two of my colleagues.  It was a relaxing meal with pleasant conversation and good food.

Money's been kind of tight lately, but that isn't going to get in my way of my 26 Acts.  It just means that I've had to get a little bit creative!

So tonight, once I knew what I was ordering, I placed this note in my menu.  I don't know about you, but if I found a note like this in a menu, it would definitely  make me smile!  I hope that whoever opens this menu next, also smiles.

And this smile is in memory of Benjamin Wheeler.  Six year old Ben was a bright and spirited child, who idolized his big brother Nate.  Ben played soccer, swam, and was in scouts.  He loved school, seeing his teacher and friends, and wanted to be an architect or paleontologist when he grew up.  Ben also loved The Beatles, which is a refreshing thing for a child to love.  Ben will be missed by many, as he left behind a huge family of love.


  1. What a great idea! And what a blessing for the finder. Maybe it will help remove the anxiety that so often goes along with eating, for someone.

    1. I am so glad you commented Jerimi, cause I never would have thought about a note like this lifting some of the anxiety surrounding eating. I know that had I seen a note like this in a menu when I was first beginning recovery, it would have made my meal a lot easier!


So? What do you think?
