|Vintage A&P coffee ad from my collection|
Today was one of those busy days where I was out of the house a lot. I did our grocery shopping plus my dad's in the morning, came home, put ingredients in the slow cooker and worked on my Sunday School lesson for a bit, and then headed out again to take my dad to a dental appointment in the afternoon. Came home and finished my Sunday School lesson and then put finishing touches on my dad's supper. Mr. T is delivering it as I write. Busy day!
In the midst of the busyness I found a little oasis of calm. The dental office where my dad goes has a really nice thing they do for people who are waiting, as I was, for patients seeing the dentist. They offer them coffee! Really! They ask if you'd like coffee, then you choose your little K-cup and in a few minutes they bring your brewed coffee on a little tray, in a lidded mug, with a little pitcher of cream. So there I sat, sipping Green Mountain Mocha Fudge coffee and working on a cross-stitched gift. Quietness! Serenity! Coffee! I don't take such things lightly. I truly thank the Lord for the blessing of those moments. And I thanked the receptionist, too.
