Have you ever considered how many daily life moments have a glass of milk involved?

Milk shows up in so many of life’s little moments. A few years ago, my son was having trouble gaining weight. It was through no fault of his own; he was undergoing chemotherapy and simply had no appetite. As parents, we were to the point where we wanted him to just eat anything. With the calcium, vitamin D, and potassium in a glass of milk, we tried to encourage him to drink it everyday. Sometimes he would, but other times he would not.
One afternoon, he and I were sitting at the kitchen table. I poured an eight ounce glass of milk for both of us and placed a plate with a few cookies in between us. I dipped my cookie in my milk, something he had never seen me do before. He looked inquisitive but still pushed his own glass away. We sat and talked, me dipping my cookie in milk the entire time. A few moments into the conversation, he picked up a cookie and dipped it into his cup. I pretended not to notice. He giggled as he picked up his cup and drank the entire glass. It has been several years, but I still remember his laugh and how happy I was to see him eating and drinking.
As I consider how many life moments have milk involved, I can’t believe how many little moments run through my mind.
