Just make the coffee. My mantra. It came about during my first husband’s two-year demolition derby with Glioblastoma Multiforme. Brain cancer. Ugly, ugly words. Ugly, ugly disease.
We had two boys to raise and I was determined, right or wrong, to keep life as normal as possible for them. I often wanted to stay in bed. There was often a heavy weight on my shoulders that made it oh-so difficult to get out of bed. I would tell myself to, “Just get up and make the coffee. Surely, you can do that much.” Once I was in the kitchen, I would decide that I could shuffle myself off to the shower while the coffee brewed. Hot shower, hot coffee. Another day would begin.
What is your coffee? Everyone should have something that makes them get up in the morning. It doesn’t have to be exciting. It doesn’t have to be pretty. It should help bring a smile to your face…or comfort in your stomach. The day will start rolling from that movement onward.
I’ve never blogged before. I’m glad to have you with me on my journey. Grab a cup of coffee (iced tea, hot chocolate, diet Coke, or glass of wine) and read along.
