Sparkly tutus and business suits, fruit loaf and sourdough – thoughts from Pam


I found out on Friday why Elizabeth named her blog Buttons and Bread – buttons hold things together and bread for nutrition, so I started analysing as I do, and the more I thought I realised how many shapes and colours and sizes of buttons there are – some sparkly, which is extremely important to a little girl with her pretty dress on, dancing, and the sun hitting the sparkling buttons and making them dance with her; and the businessman lawyer in his pinstripe suit with that plain round black button which his suit would not be complete without. It is hard to think that something so insignificant could be so important. Then the bread – we have the sandwich loaf which my Jake takes to school with his nutella on every day for the last 3 years and what would I do without that. But there is also flat bread, sourdough, fruit bread (yum) and how many more. Just as with the buttons we so need bread no matter what type. Now the meaning for my ravings is it is like the human being, whether white, black, green with spots or what religion we are we all are so needed on this earth. We all offer something, whether it is brilliant or something very insignificant like a button or bread. We are needed.

  1. Hi Pam,
    Thanks so much for writing these wise words – you have a great way of thinking about things, it’s made me think more about what seems insignificant but really isn’t, the everyday things that are actually crucial.
    See you soon

    What is so important to one may be so insignificant to another but does not lessen it.
