Coffee Coffee Coffee

I am so thankful for coffee.

So let me just start by saying “I am not a morning person”. Nope quite the opposite actually I pretty much dislike mornings with my whole being in the morning. I don’t like to talk or interact in any way. Its painful for me. I wake up very begrudgingly usually and am immediately thinking about coffee. “I need coffee”. I have thought about cutting coffee out of my life because it honestly kind of ridiculous to want and need something so much. The only thing I should need is Jesus. But the idea of my mornings without coffee sort of just makes be cringe. Sounds like a terrible idea when I really think about it. So, I continue to have my delicious cup of Joe each and every morning.

I start each day with my devotional, pray, a reading in my Bible, an entry in my journal, and a delicious cup of coffee.  I am currently journaling about my goals. I made some 30 days goals and am staying up on them by journaling about how I am doing on them each day. And the reason why I am doing that is because my biggest 30 day goal is to keep the promises I make to myself. So by journaling about them each day I am holding myself accountable.

I love to clean my house.

I am one of those weird people who enjoy cleaning my house. And it is because I love our house. I love the people who live and who have lived in our home. I love the tears and laughter that live in those walls. I love all of it, it has been the roof over our heads and the walls that block out so much of the world. It is our place where we can be ourselves like our real raw selves. We can laugh, love, yell, fight, and forgive all in that house. Its where I pray and look for solace. Its where my family looks for solace. I love that.

It is where we all cuddle up with a big bowl of popcorn and watch movies. Its where we watch the Polar Express every Christmas with our Hot Cocoa. Its where on cool evenings we laugh and have s’mores around the fire pit in the backyard. We have taken countless pictures for countless moments that we will never forget, and they have all taken place in that house.

We have welcomed so many friends and family members into our home over the years and have shared so much laughter. There are so many first days and last days of school, and now a high school graduation and a off to college. That house is my happy place.
