It’s suppose to get down to -5 degrees (F) in the next couple days. MINUS FIVE PEOPLE! Granted, for some of you that’s positively balmy. Still, I’m not loving it.
I do, however, love a good excuse to drink copious amounts of warm beverage–be it coffee, tea, or hot cocoa. It’s tasty, sure; but it’s so much more. It serves as the perfect hand warmer … compliments reading and writing … and soothes after a long day.
It also brings us together. What do you serve to those playing in the snow? Hot cocoa. What do you make to ease the suffering of a cold? Hot tea. What do you sip while chatting with friends? Hot coffee.
Sure, a steaming cup of goodness is pretty fabulous all it’s own–but it’s even better shared with those you love.
For that I am thankful most of all.
