Day 5 of 30 Days of Thanks goes to Love in a Cup, Coffee.
I absolutely Love Coffee. I love the taste. The Flavors.Some flavors are bold. Some are smooth. Some are bitter. I could really just go on and get really involved with the details of my love for coffee. But, I won't. What I will do is give you a little bit of background.
My father and my grandmother (My mother's mother) have always been coffee drinkers. It has never matter the time of day, nor the taste. Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my grandmother, because my parents worked a lot. I can remember, after spending all evening in her garden or running errands for her rental properties, my grandmother would come home and make herself a large cup of coffee. I would beg her to let me have a cup. She would never agree. But, from an early age I was captivated by the smell of coffee brewing.
Today, I still drink coffee just because I love the taste. However, because my life is filled with so much excitement, I drink it more because I need the energy. Drinking coffee, makes me feel like adrenaline is being pumped through my veins.When I get in the afternoon slump, the morning fog, or the night time turn down, coffee is always there to pick me up. To some of you coffee may seem like a very insignificant thing to express gratitude for, and I can understand. If you are participating in some sort of "30 Days of Thanks" on your own, I hope you are acknowledging some of the small things in life.
It's easy to be happy and thankful for a full bank account or a thriving career. Those things are obvious. But, what about the little things in life. Take Grativember to explore all the little things you love about life. The not so good moments. Stuff, which seems too insignificant to mention. These, help to define our life. I hope you identify those, not so easy to find things in your life. The people, you may not love on as regularly as you should. November, for me is about not taking anything for granted and being appreciative.
