Meowning Coffee

~ ~ ~
In the light of the new day, she wakes.
Noises from downstairs make her wonder.
She looks at the clock and gets up,
saying hello to her furry friends along the way.
After letting her dog out, she opens the cabinet
and gets out the bag that holds her beans.
Grinds and adds the water so it can brew.
She looks out the window to see if her pup is ready.
Not yet.
She leans against the counter, waiting.
Opens the other cabinet door, to get her mug.
Which one will it be today.
The old one with the cats on it or the snowmen.
It's been getting colder.
After picking her cup, she puts in her vanilla creamer,
Stirs and walks to the door.
Nope not yet.
Towards the hall she goes.
And, just as she sits in her comfy chair
to take that second sip of coffee,
she hears a bark.
Of course she's ready now.

Sounds like a purrfect morning. Of course they never want you to let them in until you sit down and get all cozy. Usually, they wait til you have a cat in your lap too!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
