Bitter/Sweet

So, my oldest is a senior in high school! Over and over I hear this year is bittersweet. I recently thought about that word. If you divide it out to two words, bitter and sweet, they have different and very opposite meanings. What I recently noticed was that bitter comes first but then the sweet is last.

Friends, that is profound to me! That which is bitter is horrible in the moment but the sweet part remains. Eating something bitter/sweet tastes awful but we enjoy the lasting taste of sweet long after the bitter hits our tongues.

Senior 2020 is bitter/sweet but I love seeing my senior thrive.
