Day 26: “Z is for “Zest”. What do you have the most zest for?
I guess that would have to be lemon pie. I really love lemon meringue pie. It should have a little lemon zest in it to bring out that lemon flavour. Sometimes I even put a little zest into lemonade, when I make it fresh. Also, I have a zest for scones with lemon in it too.
But that is not the real answer. That was me being weird. I think I have the most zest for writing and helping others.
Writers help people. They help people say the words that they cannot say at that moment in their life. We do it with speaking out the truth whether it is with humour, with drama or with any other writing style.
Also, I have a zest for serving people. I hate that about myself. I want to be more than a servant at times. I think the hardest part is being treated like a servant all the time. It can drain the spirit. I shed a lot of tears lately about this problem. I want to be the one who is not the servant for a change of pace.
What do you have a zest for in your life?
