Today, since it is Monday, I am thankful for coffee. Now, that may sound petty and small, but coffee represents so much more than a warm drink to me. It is comfort, it is tradition, it is a ritual, it is my daily life. You see, I am blessed to be able to fill my coffee cup, and my counter, at my own coffeepot, any time of the day, whenever I please. That is because I am blessed to be home, with my family. I am wrapped in the cocoon of my home, nestled within the joy of my family. This is a gift that I constantly take for granted, so I try to think of it often - as often as I fill my coffee cup.
18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

    First, I absolutely love the picture of your boys with their books. Of my three children, only one is a book lover. I'm so sad for what the other two are missing. Perhaps one day they'll learn to love books, too. It came late for my brother and now, he's a voracious reader.

    Second, you've captured what coffee means to me and said it so beautifully! I love this post.

    You have painted a very warm and cozy picture. Wrapped in the love of family is definitely a reason for thanks.

    I completely agree with you about the coffee and the small things. I'm thankful whenever I go into my kitchen and see food there and appliances to cook it. For so many in the world, even the barest necessities are beyond their reach. We have so very much to be thankful for! ((Hugs))
