If we were having coffee, we’d gulp down our hot brew, thankful for the warm rising aroma. My freezing fingers clutch the mug as if it were a teddy bear. I’d regard you, thoughtfully, look into your eyes and wonder what goes on behind that painted smile?
We all need time to just chill out, snuggle under a warm blanket and stop thinking about what is going on in the world. I’m thankful for such moments.
Time to cuddle a warm furry friend, such as our two above. Kiara is the one that is grey and black striped, while Mufassa is the ginger one. Occasionally, we nickname Mufassa, Fussy. It suits his nature. While we shorten the name Kiara to Kiri. A Kiri is a type of African walking stick, also used to smack someone over the head. So as you may guess, our young cat is quite a feisty character.
If we were having coffee, Kiara would jump by your foot, as Fussy’s paw lightly taps one of Mini-Me’s colourful marbles. The tiny ball clonks on the tiled floor as it rolls. Then Kiri hits it again, and both cats jump behind the toy, in a comical little dance. Grateful for my adorable pets, I’d offer you another warm mug.
If we were having coffee, we’d discuss Covid and the effect it is currently having on all of our lives. It’s an unavoidable topic. And unfortunately, we lost one of our close, long-time friends this week. Reality hit home. I was really at a loss for words, sad.
I’m thankful for the friends and relatives who have recovered from this. With recent figures at an all-time high here, it has been alarming. It gives one a newfound appreciation for people in the medical industry, our front-line workers. Vitamins.
And since we are having digital coffee, if you can call this blog post that, I might have to confess, that it has been nearly two weeks since my last post. I was hoping on getting into a more regular posting cycle. Nevertheless, in case you missed them, my three most recent posts:
- Living Faith: How to stand on God’s promises in trying times
- Losing my Religion: Debunking overcomplicated doctrines on baptism. What is baptism actually about?
- What is repentance?
So, if we were having coffee, what would be on your gratitude list?
Maybe you can think of a small thing you are proud of?
Or, perhaps there’s something you are looking forward to in the week ahead? We can chat about something that has gone well for you this week?
