Hello to you in your today. It’s Sunday as I write to you and I am blessed to have a cup of coffee beside me, power to run this computer, Link asleep yet in the bed and my health. My mini gratitude list! The little things are mostly what makes up the average life if you really take a look. All those minor things that when you are in a different situation, you find yourself missing and when they are back in your life you find yourself so grateful.
When I was at JPS, they had morning coffee and what a spectacle that was! Talk about a reason to get out of bed! We practically ran down to the coffee cart and then each person had their, what I refer to as, the “dark morning ritual.” I call it a dark ritual not just because coffee is dark but if you mess with people, sometimes even speak to them, before they have completed their individual process, they can get so fussy! Each person had their own process and it usually meant quite a mess for the cleaning people or one of us. Powdered creamer and the variations of sugar got all over the place as each person frantically, in some cases, opened the packages of creamer and sugars. Some people used ALOT of artificial sugars for their mix!
My thanks to the coffee maker, which changed from morning to morning, was often profuse. One morning I even had tears in my eyes when I said it to Cole. Cole was one of those who actually had the formula down to perfection on making the coffee lol! It’s the little things that can make a time that seems almost unbearable….well bearable. Sometimes routines are not just routines to those on the receiving end.
When you look at your life as it is, what is it that you are grateful for? There has to be at least one thing. When I find my life has taken a turn I’m not comfortable with, asking myself that question helps bring me back around.

I requested to listen to this song a lot when we had recreation time. I like the video attached to it for a time called The Adventures of Jasper Morello.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and that you find yourself grateful for at least one thing – even if it’s just waking up today.
