“Where’s My Cream”

This morning was a usual morning for me I woke up at 4:30 read scripture, news and then got out of bed at 5:00. As I walked down stairs to turn the coffee on I could hardly wait for my morning cup of coffee. There are days I want to go to bed early just so I can sip that first cup of coffee.  I have the coffee down to a science so that it tastes the same every morning including a special heavy cream. As I poured the dark brew in a new mug because my favorite mug just got broken. (that’s a whole other story) I could hardly wait to take that first sip. All you coffee drinkers I’m sure can relate.

He replies, “He’s in the room why mom? “I say “What do you mean why?” “Get your brother, “NOW!” My patience is running out! Josh comes rushing through, “Yes mom”. I ask him why he didn’t come out when I called him. His reply is. “Mom you called Josiah, then Jedi, then Jacob but you never called me!” I stop and think he’s right I went through all my J’s but some how missed his name. My kids no longer respond to my first call they wait till I get to the last name on my list because that’s who I really want. Can you...
