Life is like
A Hot Cup of Latte Macchiato
Foaming white hot milk
With a splash of strong black coffee
A dash of pure coffee, the tough times
Bitter, brittle, hard to swallow times
Hard times that make us
Strong, seasoned, courageous, compassionate and wise.
A spattering of dark coffee
That keeps us alert all day long.
Warm foamy milk that comforts the soul.
The Joy and Comfort of family and friends
All things that warm one’s heart,
Like a cup of hot chocolate by the fire
On a cold winter night
After losing a game, or a friend.
Paschal Mystery in a Coffee Cup.
