Coffee, with an attitude, a lttle sarcasm, alot of humor, some motivation, splash of encouragement, and tons of faith!!

Spoken Word

Growing up in a Pastor’s home, you would hear the song, “Oh Be Careful Little Ears What You Hear”, etc…. It also can go for what you say…Life brings us many challenges, experiences, good and bad…. Our emotions and hormones, for women, can come out in harsh and even hurtful ways… As a parent, you have to be so careful in what you do and say….. The phrase… “Sticks and Stones”….. Well, it’s not true, actually..Words can hurt to the core, and we can NEVER take them back.. We can apologize, but we can never take back the SPOKEN WORD. As a mother of four girls, I prayed and made a conscious effort, not to hurt with my tongue…. No one is perfect, except the Lord, but I will say, that I NEVER told my children, you are a bad child.. I hate you… You are stupid!!!  Why, you say????

Because the spoken word can never be taken back…. We are always responsible for what we say… No matter what…

We can hurt with our words, and scar a person for the rest of their lives… So be careful what you say to others.. Lift each other up.. Encourage with our words…

Coffee Shop

One of the reasons I was in the coffee business was, because of the customers.. I loved them… Every morning, bright and early, I would look forward to seeing my customers, people who were passionate and desperate about coffee.. When I worked, I not only gave them their coffee, but a warm greeting.. “Hi, how are you today?”…I remember some saying, wow!! no one has asked me that before… But I asked and I cared.. Not just to brush them off and go to the next guest, which I called them….I also gave eye contact… You engage by doing so… Customers take you seriously and professionally..

Then when leaving, I always said, Have a nice day… Wow! They were even more startled after that.. That is how I was and trained my staff to be.. People pay alot for coffee .. They deserve to be treated well.. And without them, we don’t have paychecks… It’s just a way of looking at things.. perspective….,

Ohhhh, the coffee days.. it’s been almost 2 years since I worked in coffee… I miss it at times.. But, my FB coffee page, and blog, has made up for it… Who knows what the future holds!!!!

Looking forward to going to my favorite coffee shop… soon!!!!Image

I truly want an…

I truly want and need to give back to others.. I believe that the circumstances I have gone thru are not in vain, but for a reason… In whatever I do, whether my coffee page, life, the grocery store, with friends and family, I want to make a difference… Not alot of people feel that way.. it’s whatever gets them ahead in this world.. That is good, but what about others????  What about someone who needs help??? Someone who needs hope and encouragement???

Be a beacon of light… Give love to others… Be a real friend, not just in word, but in deed… It will come back to you…

Being Strong

 

 

I truly relate to “hard times”… When my heart is breaking, when I feel I can’t go on…I do… Between my faith in God and my own personal will, life goes on and so do I.. I found this… And it is one of my favorite!! May it bless you also…
