If we were having coffee, I would welcome you with a warm hug into my home. I would make sure you had plenty of cream, for you drink coffee for the flavored creamer right? I would ask that you excuse the dust bunnies, they killed the cleaning fairy and we haven’t been able to replace her yet.
If we were having coffee I would ask how your life is going, for I truly would want to know. We get so busy in life and forget to take time just to talk, heart to heart. If your coffee gets cold while chatting I would gladly heat it up or turn it into an Iced Coffee.
While having coffee if your eyes were to look around my house you would see several pictures of my family. Pictures from years ago, like our wedding picture; who is that YOUNG couple with stars in their eyes? Who are those little ones who are now in High School? There are recent pictures as well. Looks may change over time, but the hearts stay the same and love binds the family together! There are pictures of our memorable family trip to Europe. Oh if only I could go back to Italy by clicking my heels 3x like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
If we were having coffee you would see inspirational sayings on my walls. Quotes speak to my heart There isn’t nearly enough wall space for all my favorite quotes. Depending how well you knew me you could probably guess at what some of the sayings may be, before you even saw them. When you run out of wall space you get a couch pillow with an inspirational quote on it. You may be leaning against that soft pillow right now. I would be leaning against the soft pillow that says, “I LOVE MOM”. I may shed a tear as I hold that pillow, for it would bring back memories of a Mother’s Day, where for the first time my heart was missing a precious jewel. A jewel that couldn’t be with me for the day, for the first time in 13 years. But that was then, this is now, and I would smile at you, being thankful for the blessings that are mine this very day.
If we were having coffee that might be how I end our talk. Reminding each other that no matter the pain we have gone through or are going through presently that there are still reasons to be thankful!
If we were having coffee I may glance out our living room window and see it raining lightly, and I may ask you if you would like to take a walk with me in the rain. You would even be welcome to jump in the puddles.
I would hope that if we were to have coffee that you would remember it as a bright spot in your day, for I know it would be a bright moment in mine.
