SoCS: Yesterday, Today, and Scrambled Eggs


Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yes.” Find a word that starts with “yes” or use the word “yes” as is. Bonus points if you start your post with the word you choose. Enjoy!

The first thing I thought of was the Beatles song, “Yesterday.” Such a sad, but pretty song. “Why she had to go, I don’t know, she wouldn’t say, ” That’s a mystery right there. But the clue may be that he said something wrong.

It’s funny how things can seem so wrong but eventually turn out right. Funny and good. I don’t long for yesterday, though I might have in 1972 the day after 15-year-old David, my first boyfriend, moved so far away with his family. Today, the 66-year-old David, now my husband, is leading a spiritual “Cursillo” weekend at the beach. I’ll be joining them Sunday for the closing service.

Who would have guessed? Neither one of us.

God can take something wrong and, in time, make it work out better in a way we never expected.

Just goes to show….

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow’s a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That’s why they call it the present.

I stepped out of the stream a bit to research the song, “Yesterday,” and came across this little piece of fun. Now I want scrambled eggs but will have to find a substitute since I’m vegan, like Paul changes chicken wings to tofu wings since he’s a vegetarian. I can always have a tossed salad without the scrambled eggs, but that’s another song…. from Frazier.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. So nice to read about you and David 🙂

  2. Hi JoAnna, what a lovely and romantic story 😊

  3. First, the “Scrambled Eggs” song was fun 😀 I’ve also cut eggs from my diet, but no tofu for me. As happened with you and David, some things in the past that seem so wrong can eventually turn out right. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow are all one on the time continuum. May your weekend together be a blessed one ❤

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the song. I have to be careful not to eat too much tofu/soy. This evening I had quinoa and lentils. The time continuum is an intriguing concept. Thank you for the blessing. I hope you’re having a good weekend, Rosaliene. ❤

  4. Such a clever post, I would never have thought of the song Yesterday…. One of a favourite of mine too… Wishing you a wonderful weekend JoAnna… Love and Hugs..

  5. I liked the song, but I love yours and David’s story.

  6. I didn’t know you were vegan, Wow!

  7. Yesterday is history.
    Tomorrow’s a mystery.
    Today is a gift.
    That’s why they call it the present.

    Yes, indeed!
    Yes indeedy!
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Beautiful story of you and David, JoAnna! Yesterday merged into your present. He moved far away and now you are closer than ever on that day. Many blessings to you, MW. 🙏❤️🙏
