Late yesterday morning, I went downstairs to get a cup of coffee. Gerry and I had both indulged in a second cup earlier, and so there was only a dribble left; certainly not enough to fill the big Starbucks mugs that we typically drink our coffee from. So, I took out one our smaller cups and poured the coffee in, adding a splash of hazel nut flavoring.
With my first taste, I struck with how good it tasted! For some reason, the smaller cup seemed to invite me to sit down, take a break, and enjoy this cup of coffee.
It seems that in life we are so busy that we gulp down our mugs of coffee on the run, and don’t stop to enjoy the flavor and experience that is there for the taking.
Instead of a venti, next time I’m going to get a tall. I am going to slow down, maybe even sit down, and experience the pleasure of a cup of coffee.
