In Forrest Gump, Sally Field said one of the most memorable lines ever:  “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” 

I think life is like a box of chocolates in many ways:

Life is like a box of chocolates- it’s too expensive for me to truthfully enjoy.
                                                 – it’s better when shared with someone.
Life is like a box of chocolates- it can be sweet, dark, or full of nuts.  
                                                 – it sometimes melts into a gooey mess.

Life is like a box of chocolates, you can indulge it in quiet moments, share it with loved ones, or hoard it all to yourself.

Life is like a box of chocolates- it can be a gift.
                                                 – it’s gone before you know it. 

Yummy!  How else is life like a box of chocolates?
