Thankful For: Coffee

As we approach Thanksgiving this month in the United States of America, I thought it would be nice to write a daily post about something I am thankful for.  Some of them will be little things and some of them quite important. I am not posting them in any particular rank or order and will cover many different things. Fortunately I have a lot of things to be thankful for, for which I am thankful.  The idea isn’t unique and I welcome you to do something similar, even if you don’t typically celebrate this holiday.

Let’s begin:

A little thing I am thankful for is coffee.  It is generally how I like to start my day, a nicely brewed, hot cup of coffee.  I often like to add a bit of sugar and cream, that goes with having a sweet tooth, but there are times I also will drink it straight.  It is a warming drink on a chilly morning and warms both inside and out as I hold the mug in my hands.  The distinct aroma is so pleasant that smelling it is almost as good as drinking it. It has become a part of my daily routine and as such has taken on a comfort food role as well. If for some reason I am not able to drink it on a given day, that day just seems a bit off…it didn’t start properly.

So yes, one thing I am thankful for is coffee.

Does coffee hold a similar spot in your life or do you prefer a different morning drink?
