I'm going to try something new on Thursdays here -- I'm going to write about something for which I'm thankful. I'm not going to call it a New Year's resolution, just a regular effort to take some time to focus on the positives -- on some of my favorite people, places and things.
Today: The first cup of coffee in the morning.
If you're a coffee lover, is there anything better? It can warm you and wake you... open your eyes and clear your mind. The awakening begins with the aroma -- the smell, teasing you with a hint of what's to come as the first drips of dark start to cover the bottom of your pot or mug (depending on your delivery method).
Yes, I get up ridiculously early in the morning (my alarm is actually set for 2:30AM now), so my first cup of coffee comes, quite honestly, in the middle of the night. But it doesn't matter what time you wake up -- the first cup is the best cup of the morning. The best cup of the day.
There may come a day when I write about a specific favorite coffee beverage, but that day is not today. Today, we raise a mug to that vital nectar of life, without which we'd be wandering aimlessly through our day. Here's to that first cup of coffee.
Today's Title: Cream, no sugar, and generally not in bed for me
