Coffee break...

So if you and I were to sit down for coffee today,
I would be drinking a cup of
Costa Rica coffee, that my dear husband brought back from
his travels.  It really is some of the best coffee in the world.

I would tell you how ready I am for summer weather.
But as with other things in our lives,
winter is only for a season.
And summer is coming!

Soon the buds of spring will be around us and the
days will turn longer and spring will turn to summer.

And so the seasons of life may seem long at times,
like the cold, long winter months,
but "spring" is coming,
you will hear it when your heart has little
moments of happiness,
and when you see the impossible
become a possibility.
And when the tears come not because of
deep pain but because of laughter
filling your eyes and giving you hope.

I know this, I have been in a "winter"
that I thought would never end.
But I can see the new life that the "winter"
has brought and I can laugh again.

So when you can't see to read this and
you have tears in your coffee,
know that I have been there,
and I know pain,
and spring is coming!

May your day be blessed with unexpected little bits of
laughter and hope!

Thanks for joining me for coffee,
I'm linking up here for a coffee break.
